Our mentors work one-on-one
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 high-needs schools to help them discover their creative abilities, believe in themselves, and dream of a brighter future.
We partner with urban elementary schools in the Twin Cities. Our after-school programs are provided free for students ages 8-11.
Our mentors are unique
Our creative mentors come from all sorts of professional fields, including advertising, architecture and design.
They share their time and talents to help children take pride in who they are, what they can do, and who they can become through the power of creativity.
Kids thrive on the one-on-one attention our mentors provide, and we love helping children realize their creative potential!
