Sophia's Masters' Art Education

Donation protected

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!
