The Art Foundry at River Station is Meicholas Art Foundation's artists co-location project-where artists have access to affordable studio spaces to continue making arts, growing their business and also inspiring the community to do arts. It is an art space that has community gallery and six multi disciplinary artists in residence.

The Meicholas Art Foundation is a family founded non for profit organization that believes the arts should be accessible for everyone in the community for the community to prosper and individual artists to sustain their artistic pursuits. The foundation was founded in 2016 prior to the wildfire that ravaged through the Wood Buffalo Region and displaced over 80,000 people. Previous to the fire, there was an obvious need for artists support through direct business opportunities and community art education. Now more than ever, there is a need for the arts in a community on a psycho-social level to rebuild and reconnect. 
With your pledges, together, we can help provide our community the much needed uplifting and inspiration, especially the youth and the children.

We need the money to buy supplies and pay artists to lead the art classes, while Meicholas Art Foundation will provide the venue for it.

When a mother of four children asked to have some fees reduced for her and her children to all avail the art program, my heart broke. With our current situation, after the wildfire,trying to sustain our businesses along with our lease and utilities, it was challenging to say yes. I did say yes, with thoughts of finding a better way of helping our community to stay resilient, using the arts as additional tools for life recovery and restoration. With this financial goal, we can start buying art supplies like paints and canvasses and other jewelry making materials for drop in classes with youth and children and also parents.

Our resident artists can be made available for a discounted hourly fees to lead art classes to any group of youth and children who wants to avail this art program at least twice a month, with a target of at least 25 children or youth.
