Lefty Smudges goes to school!

This campaign was created to help me get to and pay for school at Yukon SOVA  (School of Visual Arts) in Dawson City, Yukon, Sept. 2019 - April 2020. This a foundation year art program. I seek this education as an investment into a long-term future for myself as an artist. I chose Yukon SOVA for the opportunity to deepen my understanding of and relationship to Turtle Island and the Tr'ondek Hwech'in First Nation.. 

So, first I need to get to Dawson, next I need to pay my tuition. 

Below is an expense list for the funds generated:
$1000 - travel, from London, Ontario to Dawson City
$3200 - school tuition and supplies
$800 - for food and accommodation until I get settled and find a job. 

As soon as there is enough money in the pot, I can purchase my travel tickets. I have until Sept. 30th to pay my tuition in full. 

If you would like more information about me, or want to know about the work I do, please visit my website . If you are able to donate $30 or more, please include your mailing address in a note to me, and I will make sure to send you something in the mail. 

Thank you so much, in advance, for all your help. Thank you for your support, thank you for believing in me, thank you for helping me get the education I seek.
