This unique, limited edition Pepper Tote Bag was designed by local Los Angeles based artists Erick Pepper Rivera who donated this original design to support Budding Artists goal of providing tuition-free arts education programming to young pre-kindergarten children in under-resourced areas within Los Angeles County.


Budding Artists has partnered with Mychal’s Learning Place in Hawthorne, CA which provides job training programs to young adults who have developmental disabilities, to produce our mugs. Donations from the Artist Mug Series will support both organizations.


Our mugs:

  • Empower Local LA and Long Beach Artists,
  • Strengthen Mychal's Learning Place job skills program for young adults with developmental disabilities,
  • Support our tuition-free arts education programming for young children in under-resourced communities within Los Angeles County.
