We believe in the power of creativity and one-on-one attention to change children’s lives.
Art Buddies pairs creative mentors with kids from low-income families at partnering elementary schools. We help children discover their creative gifts, believe in themselves, and dream of a brighter future.
Our creative mentors come from all sorts of professional fields, sharing their talents and experiences with the children we serve. Each mentor helps a child create something more imaginative, ambitious and unique than they may have thought possible, then celebrate their accomplishment in an exciting parade, show and photo shoot.
The kids take pride in who they are, what they can do, and who they can become—and we love helping them realize their creative potential!
