We are a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization promoting the importance of the arts and it’s impact on our children- the next generation of leaders.

We are committed to empowering marginalized teens in Southern California to pursue their artistic aspirations by providing them with comprehensive resources and unwavering support to transform their dreams into reality.


“What moves men of genius, or rather, what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough.”

Eugene Delacroix


Teenagers in marginalized neighborhoods frequently face a scarcity of options for their futures. A career in the arts has been undervalued and frequently disregarded for a very long time. We are here to emphasize the significance and promise of the arts in our lives, as well as its viability as a career path for the next generation.


We value the richness and nuance that each individual brings to our community. We hope that our programs and opportunities that we provide will serve as a catalyst for greater cross-cultural understanding by providing a space for the exchange of ideas and traditions from all walks of life.


We aim to build a diverse and progressive society that values diversity of opinion and wealth of perspectives. Recognizing the potential of the arts as a medium for fostering community and enriching individual lives is fundamental to us.

Our MISSION is to create and provide academic scholarships for hopeful students looking to pursue careers in the arts- whether it be fine art, digital art, dance, or music- the possibilities are endless.

What We Didn’t Have

We want to show our next generations that there are options out there for their futures- not just the pre-fabricated and “safe” career choices. Innovation was never achieved through repetition and bland creativity. We would like to provide the assistance and motivation that was not made available to us to help kickstart our journeys.

Long Term Goals

The importance of art and the imaginative and creative thinking that it promotes is crucial to our children’s education which is why we will make it our mission to obtain enough contributions through YOUR help in order to provide art supplies to elementary schools that lack the funds or the motivation to incorporate such into their programs and/or curriculums
