What is our goal?
Young artists may have the talent and the spirit to be great artists and The Jerry Goldstein Foundation seeks to give scholarships to the most needy and talented young artist who might otherwise struggle to get such an education and mentoring.
Jerry always was first a friend to his customers who through Jerry's Artarama became the first company ever to discount artist materials in 1964. Jerry worked the sales floor for the next 30 years and always tried to support his customers on a daily basis creating a company that today seeks to assist them in making a living as an artist, creating awareness of the importance of the artist in society and providing thousands of free art lessons at Jerry's Artarama.com to further the availability to free education.
Our mission is to insure a quality arts education to young talented artists who would otherwise not be able to go on to higher education or alternatively help them pay for one.
The cornerstone of all civilizations are people who can see the world clearly as it is today and create ideas, images and products that have never been. Without these people civilization as we know it would have never been.
Visual art inspires creativity from creating a new car design to inspiring a new car engine.
The assembly line by Henry Ford nor the first automobile by Karl Menz would never have occurred without great leaps in thought. The automobile of today was created by the first dreamer who looked at a horse and carriage and put new technology together with old.
Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot in 1769 developed the very first vehicle not to use an animal to power it. It used a steam engine. In 1807 François Isaac de Rivaz invented the internal combustion engine. Karl Benz is the first to use this engine to make an automobile in 1886. Henry Ford with his assembly line started creating affordable cars in 1908.
It is only in a creative environments that this type of development can take place.
Inspiring more people to paint, draw, dance or compose music will help promote this essential environment. This to assure that each generation moves forward in man's quest to understand nature and himself.
