Artpie School of Art Foundation, Inc., was created to help bridge the economic, racial and social divisions by providing under-resourced youth with the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in the arts. We are offering free Artpie School of Art creative workshops to introduce interested youth to careers in the arts and serve as a bridge to higher education. By participating in Artpie School of Art workshops, mentors and students can earn money by working on commissioned art, graphic design or other creative projects. 


Businesses and individuals can contribute by traditional tax deductible donations or by purchasing one of our design services.
