Help Fund a Creative Haven
Monday, May 15, 2017
Dre Towey has long been a creative force throughout Fairfield County. She needs your help to share her gift of art with underserved children in our community. She's turned her art & music studio, JAM, into a non-profit dedicated to providing a creative haven for the children throughout Fairfield County. The money raised will pay for the first year of studio overhead (rent, electric, water, insurance), art materials and instruments.
Why a creative haven?
Seven years ago, JAM quietly opened its doors to the public. Thousands of children benefited from the hands-on, process oriented art and music which was Jam’s signature. Whether painting, singing, splatting, spinning, strumming or drumming-- children discovered that there was no limit to their creativity when their creativity was not limited. During this time Dre created a JAM outreach. The studio was in the ideal location to serve low income families. Children, teens and families came to us from The Open Door Shelter, Neon, The Housing Authority, The Carver Center and Family & Children Services. She hosted a Literary Arts Program for families as well as art, design, film classes and camps for children ages 7-14. It was during this time when Dre realized the true need for art and music in our community and the necessity for children to have a safe space to create, free of inhibition.
Now, as a 501c3, JAM is able to expand upon its art and music outreach, continue relationships with local organizations and invite more children and families to the new studio at little or no cost. It's easy to help, click here to donate.
