It is the Ottawa School of Art’s pleasure to invite you to our 2013 fundraising event J’adart. Guided by our motto “Teaching art to everyone”, OSA has been Ottawa’s leading centre for visual arts education in the region since 1879. In honour of this amazing night, we would very much appreciate your attendance to a memorable evening like J’adart.
In this, our 8th year of hosting our annual fundraiser, J’adart has a target of raising $20,000 and much needed promotion for our Children and Youth Outreach Program. As a not for profit school, OSA provides barrier-free art classes to hundreds of children and youth each year through our Outreach and Bursary Programs. Please join us and demonstrate a commitment to art education and culture in Ottawa. Studying visual art provides unique ways of knowing, doing, being, and learning for all students. We need your support to help us enrich the lives of children in need by providing them with quality art instruction taught by professional artists. Your support will enable OSA in providing these children with new ways of self-expression, self-awareness, and confidence.
Our roaring 20’s styled cocktail party will take place on Thursday, May 9th, 2013, from 6:30pm at the Karsh-Masson Gallery. OSA will invite distinguished and dedicated art patrons; past Board of Directors Presidents; embassies; federal and provincial government leaders, and prominent social figures. With live music, arts activities and delicious hors-d’œuvres, it will be surely an exciting night!
As we continue to organize this event, we would like to keep you informed and answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to contact our Resource Coordinator, Claudia Gutierrez, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 613-241-7471, extension 31. We hope to see you join in our festivities and celebrate the impact OSA has on our community.
