"I never really knew I was creative before. Now I know I can do anything!" Maria, age 9

Art Buddies brings meaningful after-school arts education to high needs schools through 1:1 mentoring with dedicated creative professionals. For 25 years, we have partnered with Twin Cities public schools to facilitate 10 free weekly sessions focused on writing, design, sculptural and costume art. Through a semester of joyful guided programming and mentorship, young scholars build self-esteem and creativity, discovering all they can do through the power of creative collaboration and connection.
