Focusing on CREATIVE PARTNERSHIPS with our diverse COMMUNITY to meet the CHALLENGES of our time through the ARTS.
A full year after our lives changed dramatically due to COVID-19, West Windsor Arts is still here and still growing due to the generosity of community members like you. It is through your support that we continue to offer the programs and services that have allowed us to play a key role in sustaining a healthy community through the arts.
Through cooperative programs we have been able to offer 38 weeks of free Digital Art Comic classes to underserved youth, created the “Art Kit for a Cause” that provides healing for patients undergoing cancer treatment or uplifting for families experiencing homelessness, and created a community art project to promote anti-racism, just to name a few.
Thank you for making a donation to keep your community arts organization alive.

On April 23, 2019 Priscilla passed away at home surrounded by loved ones. Our deepest condolences go to her family and wide circle of friends. We are deeply honored to have worked with Priscilla and benefited from her generous spirit. Her daughters, Alisa and Carin Algava wrote a beautiful obituary that truly captures her “see-beauty-everywhere light and love.”
Priscilla taught us the joy that comes from creating and sharing through her encouraging and supportive spirit. We marveled at how painting remained a meditative and healing practice as she battled cancer. Through this initiative, we are able to perpetuate her legacy by launching the Priscilla Snow Algava Scholarship Fund to enable anyone who wishes to pursue art classes at the West Windsor Arts Council to do so despite any financial obstacles. The Priscilla Snow Algava Fund has been established by former student Sherri Andrews. Please make a tax-deductible donation today!
It’s no secret that children come alive when they work in the arts. Imaginations spark and developing minds thrive. In fact, studies show that high engagement in the arts leads to increased academic achievement, better attendance in school, increased motivation, and higher levels of community engagement.
A donation of $400 will support one week of camp, $200 will cover the cost of most classes. But, do feel free to donate any amount and we’ll be sure to put it to good use. Over the past 3 years, donations to our scholarship program have allowed us to provide over 25 classes and camps to 17 people.
Our staff chooses applicants based on financial need, interest in arts participation, and willingness to contribute toward their child’s success in the program. At times, we may also provide lunches, extended day care, or a travel stipend to our scholarship recipients. Many children are referred to us by family members, teachers, or social workers. Please help us continue this valuable program by donating today!
“While I can’t wait for the day we can all be together again, the virtual online opening receptions I attended these last several months prompted many lively and in-depth discussions between the audience and artist, and among the artists themselves. I found these windows into the creative thought process most enlightening and meaningful, an element not easily witnessed during in-person receptions. As an aspiring amateur artist, learning from professional artists and listening to their peers in an informal and non-threatening atmosphere was priceless.”
2019-2020 Donor Honor Roll
