HELP CREATORS &
DEVELOP NEW WORKS
Artists need money to do what they do. We offer patronage to select CAI artists, and grants for specific new works.
Artists need connection in order to create. We host salons to discuss the creative life, classes to continue learning both the craft and business of art, and we facilitate or produce arts events to further develop new works. Also, our online presence makes some of these tools & ideas available to artists everywhere.
