Review for Tamarack Foundation Inc, Charleston, WV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The foundation has created an artist directory.that has led to several inquiries about my work. Ii feel that these contacts will eventually become commissions.
I attended several workshops on creating a successful artistic business. These workshops were sponsored by the foundation .
After retiring from thirty- two years of teaching art in public schools and an additional three years at the university level, with Tamaracks help, I have become a successful artist. I truly appreciate their help and advice.


If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Add more workshops.

Would you volunteer for this group again?


For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Quite well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?


When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

Review for Tamarack Foundation Inc, Charleston, WV, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an art teacher for many years, I had given all of my time to fostering creativity in my students. Now it is my turn to find MY creative self. Tamarack gave me the opportunity to do this. Although I was rejected a couple of times in the jurying process, it made me perfect my skills to achieve the quality they demanded. I am now selling well, not only at Tamarack but in galleries across the US. I have begun to win awards not only as an Atisian but as a Fine Artist. Thaks Tamarack.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Perfecting my artistic skills. They appointed a mentor to work with me for 4 days at their expense.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The exposure and the opportunities for further training they provide.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Polite, Professional & well trained.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

serve more WV Artisans & Artist. Add more education functions & classes.

Ways to make it better...

I have had an excellent experience.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The economy.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
