The Essex County Artist Fund is Essex County Community Foundation’s response to the immediate and everyday needs of artists to be supported and lifted up across the county and across sectors. At ECCF, our philosophy is to build a creative ecosystem focused on awareness and appreciation for arts and culture, capacity building, collaboration, and cultural planning. Individual artists and arts/culture organizations are key to this network. www.eccf.org/creative-county.
Artist Name: Tia Cole – Lynn

Creative Practice: For the last 3 years I’ve worked as an arts educator and community arts coordinator.
Artist Statement: Most of my work is done with children in high risk or economically challenged areas, often my art was the only time they would have hands on experiences with simple things like paint and clay.
