Join Our Family of Supporters


Dear Friends of ARTsmart and FACT:

We have done it, and done it right!

ARTsmart is thriving after our merger with Fine Art for Children and Teens (FACT). By joining forces, we have strengthened and kept critical visual arts programs alive for the youth of Santa Fe and northern New Mexico.

As Roni Rohr, art teacher at Eldorado Community School, says of our programs:

ARTsmart funds help purchase supplies for hands-on art making … but more importantly, they open up opportunities for students to access museums, work directly with the curators, and bring in visiting artists with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Our visiting multi-cultural artisans are the heart of my program.

Dr. Suzanne Jacquez Gormon, principal at El Camino Real Academy, echoes Ms. Rhor’s comments stating:

ARTclub provides invaluable support to our after-school staff and exposes students to art history, a rich vocabulary, and a variety of art materials and techniques.

We are grateful to you—our community, businesses, individuals, and national supporters. You are the lifeline that makes the dreams of New Mexico’s teachers and students a promise and reality.

Become a part of ARTsmart’s family of supporters  By contributing what you can, you will be a part of the ARTsmart community, helping us reach our goals.

Hooked on Helping,

Connie Axton
