Amanda Cunningham joined the Art Buddies team as an intern in January 2019, and became our contracted Program Assistant in August 2019.
A 2019 graduate of Hamline University, Amanda holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History. With her interest in art, Amanda has a passion for working with children and creating equal opportunity in her community.
“I was drawn to Art Buddies because I could see the impact they were making in children’s lives.”
Through her internship, Amanda says that “after being paired with a buddy myself, it quickly became the best part of my week. I looked forward to hearing about the limitless ideas he had for himself, his future, and his costume.” Amanda looks forward to continue working with Art Buddies this fall as the Program Assistant.
We are excited to welcome Amanda to her new role as she continues her journey with Art Buddies!
