ArtSmart’s first online art auction will go live on November 29 and end December 15, 2022. All proceeds will go to further ArtSmart’s mission to transform the lives of youth in under-resourced communities across the US through tuition-free music lessons and mentorship, by paid professional artists.
ArtSmart is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a vision to bring youth out of poverty and end the mental health crisis. It has two main focuses: 1) to mentor youth in under-resourced communities through music and 2) to employ young artist mentors with competitive compensation and quality work. ArtSmart provides 100% free private music lessons to students in seven cities across the US– LA, Seattle, Chicago, NYC, Philly, Newark, and Jersey City. Through weekly one-to-one and group sessions over the course of the school year, middle and high school students receive individualized arts education while developing a meaningful relationship with their music mentor.
