We believe in the power of creativity and one-on-one attention to change children’s lives.
Art Buddies, a program of the nonprofit Creatives for Causes, pairs creative mentors with kids from low-income families at elementary schools in Minneapolis. Our mentors come from all sorts of creative fields.
We help children discover their creative gifts, believe in themselves and dream of a brighter future. We help them create something fanciful, unique and more ambitious than they may have ever imagined, then celebrate their achievement in an exciting parade.
The kids feel joy and pride in their success, and we love helping them succeed!
