24hr ARTathon!

June 24, 2017 @ 10:00 am - June 25, 2017 @ 10:00 am

Artathon works like this ......

WE STAY AWAKE FOR 24 HOURS. No sleeping - just drawing, painting, sculpting, throwing clay, taking photographs, talking, eating… And did we mention not sleeping? Just 24 wild and wacky hours of art making, starting June 24.

FRIENDS & FAMILIES like YOU cheer us on, send donations, and follow us as we post crazy hourly photos throughout the night – evidence that we are in fact doing a ton of art (and progressively losing our minds at the same time).

We’ve done this crazy thing for 16 years in a row now because we believe in YAC. And speaking of believing in YAC, not just one, but TWO FOUNDATIONS – the Chapman and Harden Foundations – will both be MATCHING YOUR DONATIONS!

So please join us again, or for the first time, in this traditional right of passage for YACsters, and the biggest grassroots effort of the year which we count on to bring in a substantial chunk of YAC’s annual operating funds. The work done during that 24 hours will be exhibited at our Summer Art Show on July 28th!

Will you join us and make a donation? Please consider donating online here.

Artathon donations will continue to be matched through July. For amounts of $50 and over, you will receive the now famous “Before and After” photo of YACsters and mentors.
