Interviews and observations conducted with four Directors and four Teaching Artists at different nonprofit art organizations in a West Coast city within one of the largest urban areas in the country. Questions were given to further understand how these areas impact one another and why it is important to provide quality art education to the public. The study shows how despite the difference in size of each organization in the study, they all rely on the same things from their funders, and all believe their art programs provide an impact on their community. Research was done to see how Teaching Artists focus on the art education they are providing, whether they are required to perform other tasks, and how this impacts the education programs. The Directors of each organization were asked what more they would like to see from their funders. They all stated that it would benefit their program if the funders understood more about the role of their art programs. This research may benefit funders, other nonprofit art organizations, and Teaching Artists employed by nonprofit art organizations.
