Pay What You Can?

In the past, we’ve offered Art School as tuition-based programming ranging from $30-$260 depending on the class and were able to use this funding in part to support our free community-based programming. We’re fortunate this year to have grant funding from New Mexico Arts and the City of Albuquerque to support paying our teaching artists to develop classes for our Art School program so we have opted to offer our classes to you following a pay-what-you-can. Attendees have been contributing between $5 and $150 for our classes. Anything that you are able to contribute is greatly appreciated and will be used to support Harwood’s programming which is all currently being offered to the community either for free or pay-what-you-can.
