Help us raise $1,077.58 for art supplies so we can provide 130 local children with art classes at our Trailblazers Academy!

The arts are essential to understanding ourselves and our world and provide a means of communication where words fail. Art brings joy, reflection, and connects us across social, economic, and cultural divides. As a trauma-responsive organization, we know that kids who have suffered trauma need artistic outlets to express themselves, heal, and grow as young people.

You can make engaging art classes possible for middle school students who love to express themselves artistically, as well as to those who are just discovering their artistic selves. Your gift ensures a broad range of artistic experiences for our students where they can play, experiment, and create.

A program of Domus, Trailblazers Academy is an alternative charter middle school in Stamford. We serve 130 students in 6th through 8th grade who have not been successful in their previous schools and need a smaller, more personal learning environment. More than 90% qualify for free or reduced lunch based on extremely low household incomes. We provide a safe, supportive school community where students can make gains in their academic, social, and life skills—and successively transition to high school on a path toward a happy, productive adulthood.

The following specific art supplies are needed for students to benefit from the art curriculum:

  • 10 pk 8×10 canvas x4 $ 80.00
  • super value pack brushes x4 $ 20.00
  • acrylic paint value pack x20 $ 160.00
  • acrylic paint value set x10 $ 111.00
  • air dry clay x10 $ 111.00
  • mask forms x50 $ 150.00

  • plastic canvas needles $ 20.00
  • 18”x21” embroidery fabric $ 83.40
