In the face of this pandemic we’ve all had to adjust to new ways of going about our business, and TGAI is no exception. Our recent quarantine-induced sabbatical has presented an opportunity for introspection as we’ve taken stock of how we can best serve our community and maximize our impact on artists of all ages.
The current—and likely ongoing—social distancing requirements will prevent our facilities from reopening and allowing us to accommodate the number of students we’ve had in past years. So rather than limit the scope of our programs, we’re expanding our reach and evolving our offerings to bring value to more aspiring and practicing artists throughout the region. 
The new TGAI model will be one of partnerships, wherein we’ll work directly with public and private organizations across the community to support new and existing arts programming, lending both our expertise and our financial support. Leaning into our history of successful public art projects and creative community activities, we’re excited to be increasing our course offerings and look forward to working together on new creative initiatives.
We’re happy to announce the first of such joint ventures in the form of a partnership with the Slater Family Network, whose mission is to empower families in need in the Bangor Area School District. Together we’ll be donating and distributing art materials with the support of a Crayola Cares donation, to provide creative outlets for students confined at home due to the virus.
Hope is the most powerful tool, and art and inspiration is what TGAI will continue to provide to our community.  For questions and further information, or if you would like to donate funds or space, please contact TGAI at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
