Our Impact in the Community
Budding Artists nurtures creativity, serving over 250 children and adults in the South Los Angeles area since October 2018.
Within our first year, 25 preschool-age children and 20 adults engaged with our process-based art classes through our 2019 Summer Exploration Program at the Lucy Avalos Community Center in partnership with the City of Lynwood Department of Parks and Community Services. More than 90 people attended our Annual Culminating Exhibition which documented our student's creative exploration over the summer.
We have distributed over 100 new or gently used books to children and teens as part of our Adopt-A-Book Literacy Program in partnership with the Tena Foundation. Additionally, our Gift of Play project donated over 60 toys during the 2019 holiday season in the South Los Angeles area.
