Save the Snowland Art School

$19,130 of $19,000 goal

Raised by 130 people in 10 months
This campagin is to help save the Snowland Art School. The school was started by Kristel Ouwehand in the Tibetan province of Amdo. The goal of the school is to promote Tibetan art and culture. 

At this time, the most urgent need of the school is to complete the purchase of the home in which serves as the school and dormitories. Without the home the school will not be able to function and students will be sent back to their families unable to complete their education. 

$19,000 (Canadian Dollars) needs to be raised  to save the school.

As the students that are selected are mostly from low income nomadic families, Kristel does not charge any tuition for the 4 years of training. Only a token amount of 500 RMB is paid by the families for the entire 4 year period. Remarkably, the school has therefore been funded solely by the sales of Kristel and the students’ artworks as well as commissioned paintings and murals.


Every little bit counts to help support our fundraising. 

Whatever you can afford, will go directly to the management and operation of the school for the purchase of the building, supporting our students to continue their art studies and helping protect and promote their cultural heritage.
