Artistic Volunteer

Art Start

What is Art Start?

In the spring of 1991, a handful of artists got together to make art with homeless kids in NYC. Over the next decade and a half, Art Start became an award-winning, nationally recognized model for using the arts to save lives and transform communities. Art Start instills in our kids the confidence to ask important questions, make independent choices, and pursue meaningful opportunities to share their ideas and dreams.
