It is the Ottawa School of Art’s pleasure to invite you to our Annual Fundraising Party J’ADART: For the Love of Art! Guided by our motto, “Teaching Art to Everyone”, we are planning an amazing evening and look forward to your attendance.
In this, our 12th year of hosting our annual fundraiser, J’ADART has a target of raising $15,000 towards our Community Outreach Program and our Bursary Program. As a non-for-profit charity, Ottawa School of Art provides barrier-free art classes to hundreds of children & teens each year through our Community Outreach Program, taught by professional artists. OSA partners with 9 community centres and houses to make this program come to life. Through our Bursary Program we enrich the lives of many people who can’t afford to send their children to art classes or summer camps or take courses for themselves. This program has been in place for over 30 years. Each year OSA provides bursaries ranging from $150- $300, mostly to children and youth. Please join us and demonstrate a commitment to art education and culture.
“I’m really good at drawing and everyone asks me ‘How do you do that?’ and I say 'I practice'.”
