Sophia's Masters' Art Education

Hi there! We are the family of a retired US Navy veteran who is also disabled. Now that I am disabled myself, it has been tough to find money for anything “extra” - and yet we are creatively managing somehow!
Additionally, we are a homeschooling family in Idaho, so the onus for purchasing any curriculum materials, additional lessons, and school supplies is one hundred percent on us. Like I said, I find creative ways to make this happen, but now that I am unable to work, the struggle has indeed become quite real. 

Our youngest daughter, Sophia, has proven to be multi-talented – and one of her great talents is artistic expression. We’ve chosen a number of free art curricula in the past, but now that she is getting a bit older and her talent is burgeoning, I am enrolling her in a course to study the great Masters of Art.  

I’m really excited about this course, but the only problem is, a lot of art supplies we don’t have are required. I have made an exhaustive Amazon wishlist (link at the bottom) of all the supplies she’ll need for this course, and it’s just so much more than we can afford at the moment. 

I don’t want this opportunity to pass Sophia by, so I am asking you to please help her – and us – out by either making a donation to this fund that will go directly to her school supplies, or by purchasing any of the items on her Amazon list. 

Thank you on behalf of all of us. I will update this page periodically with artwork that Sophia has created as a direct result of this course. Cheers!

I've long had this set of white shelves and cubbies for all of my own crafting needs. But now that Sophia's art supply collection is growing, as are her artistic talents, I've rededicated the shelves to Sophie's needs. They're coming along! Almost all filled up, with more space waiting for the art works she produces. I can't wait! Thanks so much for your support. If you'd like to shop from the remaining list of art supply needs, her Amazon wishlist is here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/giftlist/2O3KE65XHFJTJ

Thank you!! ~M

Wow, you guys! Y'all have really stepped in and stepped up to help out my girlie and me! Shana, my BFF#1, went to our Amazon wishlist (link below) and sent Sophie dozens of the art supplies she needed. And my BFF#2 donated directly to the fundraiser, enabling me to purchase even more of the supplies needed to complete her Art Masters course.

With all of these supplies on hand, I have re-totaled our fundraising needs: between the seven levels of Masters courses, and the art supplies still necessary to complete the course, I've gotten the total needed down from $2,000 to just $300 more. Our Amazon wishlist can be shopped from directly, but we would still need $148 in donations to buy the 7-course Masters set.

Thank you for all your help in donating, sharing, or even just reading what we're trying to accomplish here. Thank you!!
