Jennifer Delilah's MFA in painting!

Hello, and thanks for taking time to check out my educational funding campaign! 

I’m utterly thrilled to announce that I have been accepted to The New York Academy of Art’s Master of Fine Art program in painting, starting in the fall of 2018!

Over the years I studied with some very fine drawing teachers but went from school to school searching for instructors who could teach me how to paint realistically and never found them, until I took an extension class at NYAA, and found my place. I’m so excited by the opportunity to not only practice figurative painting and drawing technique with experts in the field, but to be able to pass on this vast wealth of knowledge to students of my own one day, but I need your help!

I have received a scholarship, grants, and loans to cover a good portion of tuition expenses, but need to raise at least $18,000 out of a total of $37,436 for the first year of tuition and fees. 

To show my appreciation for any contribution towards this goal, I will be offering signed prints of any of my works to date, plus drawings, watercolors, and for larger donations, original oils on linen. Please go to my website,  to see your image options for prints.

Premiums for Contributions:

For any contribution under 50 dollars, you will receive my undying thanks, and a signed, postcard sized print. Again, please refer to to see image options.

For contributions 0f 51-100 dollars plus shipping, you will receive a signed, 8x10 inch print of your choice.  

For contributions of 101-250  dollars, you will receive a signed, 11x14 inch print of your choice.

For contributions of 251-500 dollars, you will receive a postcard-sized original drawing or watercolor in a theme of your choice, OR two 11x14 inch signed prints.

For contributions of [phone redacted] dollars, you will receive an original, signed 8x10 inch drawing or watercolor in a theme of your choice, OR a print of any of my works, in any size up to 18x24 inches.

For contributions of 1,000 dollars, you will receive an 8x10  inch oil on linen in a theme of your choice.

1001-2000 dollars, 11x14 inch oil on linen

2001-3000 dollars, 14x18  inch oil on linen

3001-4000 dollars, 16x20  inch oil on linen

For contributions of 5,000 dollars or more, you can commission an original 18x24 inch oil painting, and I'll make you dinner.

Lots of Love, and Long Live Art!!!
