The Friends of SART is an initiative to encourage support for the Siena Art Institute’s programs. The Siena Art Institute is an official Onlus (Italian non-profit) organization based in Siena, Italy. We are committed to serving as an educational, cultural, and artistic resource for the local community and for global audiences, and providing programming for under-served groups.
Donations can be made to support the three branches of our program:
Arte in città
In our “Arte in Città” programming, we offer art workshops for children and adults from the local community as well as public programming such as our weekly series of artists’ talks, “stARTers: assaggi d’arte.”
Our Residency programing includes our Summer Residency Program, Visiting Artist Program, and Project Fellowships, in which accomplished professional artists & writers are hosted by the Siena Art Institute and are given the opportunity to pursue their artistic projects. These visiting artists and writers are a valuable component of our program, offering insight & inspiration to our students and members of the local community.
Our Scholarship programs help make it possible for any student to participate in our programs, regardless of their fi nancial resources. We believe that everyone should be given the chance to study abroad, and through the generosity of donation support, we are able to offer merit- and need- based scholarships to help our applicants to cover the cost of tuition for our programs. Scholarships are offered at the levels of full-tuition, half-tuition, and quarter-tuition.
Please consider making a donation today to become a “Friends of SART” supporter. Thank you!
