“The library will change people’s lives in the same way it has changed mine” 

-Javier Carrillo

Artist and printmaking instructor 

WHO ARE WE

We are Art Division, a non-profit organization dedicated to training underserved 18 to 25 year old young adults who show genuine commitment to the visual arts.

We are located in the Rampart District of Los Angeles. Through professional training, individual tutoring and direct contact  with working artists, our students develop the tools they need to pursue higher education, achieve self-sufficiency and begin  careers in the arts and related fields.

We started in 2010 with the help of LA Housing Partnership who donated a space for our library and classes. We provide our students with free art and art history classes, field trips, and a comprehensive Art Library. 

The heart of our program is our Art Library. We carry more than 5,000 books which were donated by members of the Los Angeles art community. 

But we have outgrown our space and we need your help

We are raising money to open a new art library. It is important to have a sophisticated art library in the Rampart District because we truly believe that looking through art books and reading about art can change lives. The books have had an enormous effect on our students and their work.

WHAT WE NEED & WHAT YOU RECEIVE  

Our mission is to create an art library that it is easily accessible to our students and community. We will provide free art history lectures to local residents including neighborhood high school and college students.  We recently received a donation of a large space for our library. However there is a need for extensive remodeling.  We will need chairs, tables, and lights. We also need funds for librarians and staff. 

Before our library can open, we need to raise $6,500 

This a flexible funding campaign, which means all the money raised will support the Art Library. 

We hope to implement a program of public Art History lectures and events in the summer of 2013.

We are also creating partnerships with other neighborhood non-profits in order to introduce art books to our community.
