Our mission as a nonprofit organization is to generate funds that are consolidated into scholarships. These scholarships allow us to provide fundamental art and wellness education to underserved minorities around the California Central Coast.
Your generous donations allow us to cover operational expenses like the use of venues, classrooms, materials, teachers and facilitators fees, and others.
For every $10,000 US we raise, we're able to offer the four-month-long Academic Program to 20 low-income students. The full term tuition cost per student is only $500.
Through your partnership with Art Essential, you become a sponsor of every student's future success and their new-found abilities of self-empowerment through useful art and wellness tools.
In this program, each student also acquires new manual, communication, and social skills, as well as business development components that will allow them to succeed in life. They graduate with a design portfolio and produce an art and portfolio exhibition upon graduation.
