Each October, we celebrate creativity and community at ArtStart, PIC's biggest fundraising event. It is a night out where (prior to COVID) parents, staff, alumni, and friends enjoy a wonderful exhibition of children's art, food and cocktails, silent auction bidding, and more to help raise funds for tuition assistance, programs, and major initiatives.
