Thanks & Giving

Momentum is thankful for all the support we received during our Grand Open earlier this month! Thank you for taking notice of our talented artists and even purchasing some of their work. You have made their holiday a little more bright with your words of encouragement. Thank you for attending! Now that our studio is open, we will have open hours for artists to come in and work or meet with a mentor. Artists interested in getting set up with a mentor will need to contact the Momentum Program Coordinator Shannon Kaster at or stop by during open studio hours to chat! We look forward to meeting with you!

We are starting our #GivingTuesday campaign and we need your help to get the word out! If you haven’t already, like our Facebook page and share our posts with your friends & family. You don’t have to dig deep into your pockets this holiday giving season, just take the $5 Challenge by donating $5 and then tagging 5 friends to do the same! Small acts can create big change. Don’t forget to use our special Facebook FRAME to let everyone know that you support our nonprofit for #GivingTuesday. All of our donations will be used to purchase paint, canvas, notebooks, and other necessities that we use for our workshops! Check our our campaign HERE
