ArtStart Countdown...43 days left!

ArtStart is just around the corner and we are counting down to Thursday, October 20th!

Donate an Item

Have an idea for a donation to the evening’s events? It’s the special talents and skills of PIC’s parents, teachers and friends that make our silent auction unique. Donate tickets to a game, a gift certificate from your favorite restaurant, or some of your homemade jams. To make a donation to ArtStart, see one of our committee members, or email Development Manager Karen Stachelek.

Join us

Come out to the Collegiate Chapel of St. Andrew (next to PIC) and see it transformed to exhibit the handiwork of all our young artists. Be ready for an evening of photography, digital displays, food, drinks, art and exciting silent auction bidding, while you catch up with old friends or introduce yourself to other parents in your classroom.

What you support

The money raised through ArtStart broadens the impact of our tuition assistance program, strengthens our community, and enriches our programs. The participation of our families, teachers, alumni, and friends each year drives the success of ArtStart and directly benefits children in our classrooms. PIC parents started the fund back in 1986 in order that more families can afford to be enrolled in high quality early learning and afterschool care--an expense that more and more has become a larger portion of the family budget!

Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 20, and watch for your invite in the mail! Tickets are $30 per person, and $50 per couple.
