FosterARTists is a 501(c)(3) charitable

organization supporting foster artists and

other artists (18 years old +) by providing an

online art gallery and art shows  for art work to be

seen, rewarded and purchased. 

Mission, Vision and Plan

 

Mission:  to be an online art gallery for foster artists and other artists  (18 years old +)  to submit images of art work, be rewarded for it, viewed and purchased.

Vision: Is to be a positive presence online for the foster care community and the art  community.

Plan to achieve mission:  Artists submit images of their art work through the Contact Us form. The goal is to reward submissions with  vouchers donated.  For example: an artist submits an image of their work and claims a voucher for a new pair of shoes or art supplies to continue or a hair cut (This is a reason to create their form of art, submit an image of it and claim a voucher. This is also a reason for companies to donate reward vouchers for submissions). All artists can claim a voucher after a submission.  Upon approval, a submission may be accepted into a main gallery.  In most cases the artists are responsible for shipping and handling their art.  Reviews are made after transactions.
