Artstart is an award winning 501(c) (3) non-profit organization founded in 1999. We are excited to have mentored over 2000 Sonoma County young apprentices in our 21 year home-based training, arts integration within our schools and group training at our Arthouse in South Santa Rosa. Our mission is to provide mentoring and stimulating work experience for youth 14-20 years of age while creating art for our community. Artart’s vision is to inspire talented youth to become artists and communicate through visual arts. We value the dignity and potential of all people. We respect and acknowledge all experiences and support diversity, equality and inclusion. We know that the very nature of creativity is transformative, where art serves as the foundation for discovery of self to mold the future.
