To Our Beloved Community:

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones well and that you have been able to find moments of hope during this trying time. 

As you know, in addition to the devastating effect COVID-19 has had on the health and lives on individuals and families, the quarantine measures required to slow the spread of the virus have made a significant impact on our economy. It has also caused extreme financial stress in the arts sector, especially on small non-profit arts institutions like The Art School at Old Church.  We need your help.

Thank you for any donation you can make, big or small.  And please, continue to keep up with your #createfromhome projects! 



Lisa Beth Vettoso, Executive Director 

And the entire staff at The Art School at Old Church


The Art School at Old Church is a non-profit art school and gallery offering over 80 classes per semester. Tuition and membership fees alone do not cover all of our operating expenses. We rely on the generosity of donors to maintain the quality of our classes and programming and to make improvements and upgrades to our school.

In 2019, our milestone 45th year, your support helped us provide art experiences to more than 2,000 students, while achieving many of our long-term goals, including:

• Launching an online registration platform
• Partnering with local schools to bring our artists into their classrooms, as well as welcoming more students into our studios and galleries
• Expanding our outreach efforts to serve more students with special needs
• Offering more free events to the public, including exhibits, receptions, artist talks, and workshops

TASOC is extremely grateful to our donors who have given funds in the past. Please consider supporting this great cultural institution. You can make a donation through PayPal by clicking on the donate button below. Tax-deductible donations, gifts, and employer matching programs are always welcome and can be included with your registration as well.


The Art School recently purchased a new electric kiln to keep our Ceramic Studio running efficiently. Please consider making a donation to help us support this purchase which is so important to our studio and students.

Any donation, great or small, helps offset the cost of the kiln. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
