Our Give Lively Campaign

As a non-profit, Olympia Lamplighters relies on donations from community members to continue the services that we provide. Online donations can be provided through Give Lively, either by going to our core page, or by filling in the donation form on this page.

Donations allow us to provide scholarships for our space, classes, and events. In donating, you’re supporting local artists, and ensuring that they have a space in Olympia to be able to create and grow.

Our Pay What You Want Membership system is thanks to previous and current donations. Thank you for giving our local artistic community an opportunity to grow, create, and learn!


Get Involved

Aside from visiting during one of our Community Nights, joining us for our classes, or just coming in to work there are other ways to become a part of our community and stay on top of everything we have to offer here at Olympia Lamplighters.

Join our newsletter to receive updates on events and opportunities hosted here. Our newsletter also allows you to sign up for volunteer opportunities such as modeling for figure drawing and helping out at events.

We also have a Discord, a multichannel chatroom that allows members of the community to stay in contact, volunteer, and create new things together.
