SUPPORT A NEW WAVE OF CREATIVE LEADERS!

It takes a visionary leader today to invest in the leaders we will need for tomorrow.

For each $5,000 scholarship, a Black artist at SKETCH will receive personalized professional development, skill building workshops, one-on-one mentorship, nutritious meals, and access to SKETCH’s 9,000 sq-ft space where they can safely develop their body of work towards public presentation.

Supporting our Spotlight Scholarship Fund means we can start 2022 by empowering a cohort of new Scholarship recipients as they develop their artistic, life and leadership skills to be among a new generation of leaders who will pave the way to a re-imagined future.

Champion change at the local level by donating to a Spotlight Scholarship today!
