My name is Nicole Lopez. I'm fundraising for lodging while I travel abroad over the summer and for art supplies to create original works of art inspired by my stay in Europe once I return home. My goal is to demonstrate professional artistry skills in the creation of the artwork and by introducing my artwork to the community by featuring the artwork in two local galleries after the artwork has been finished.

I'm currently a student at Kenai Peninsula college. I've also worked at the Kenai Peninsula Collage as the Art Assistant for almost five years now. I've been attending part time for the past ten years. I will be graduating in May with a Bachelors Degree in Art and directly after graduation I will be going on  a trip to Europe. The trip is almost entirely funded by the Art Students League Association of the Kenai Peninsula College, of which I am the president. A small group of about 6 students (including ME) intend to visit London, Paris, Venice, and Rome.

This trip will be the culmination of my art studies. I will finally get to see, in person, all of the artwork I've studied for years. I feel like it's time to finally present myself as a professional artist.When our small group returns we will be creating original works of art inspired by our trip. As part of presenting myself as a professional, the artwork I create will then be featured in two separate gallery exhibits.

But, I need your help!! Though most of the Europe trip expenses have been covered, I'm responsible for lodging funds. As most of you know, being a student means you never have a lot of money. I'm going to need help with funds for hostels as well as art supplies to create the Europe inspired artwork! HELP ME BECOME A PROFESSIONAL ARTIST!!!
