Support the Arts Council of Princeton’s Scholarship Fund to ensure that no creative mind will be excluded from fee-based classes and/or camp programs due to financial reasons. Let’s build community through the arts together!
“I just want you to know I am so grateful for 2 weeks of summer that my kids will experience art camp. I went to art camp once in my childhood (prob the only time my mom could afford it) and it was magical. I have razor sharp memories of the sewing and clay sculpture classes I took and that had to be over 25 years ago. Truly I so appreciate you AND the fact that places like the Arts Council still exist.”
