Celebrating 25 Years of Artstart! 1999 - 2024


We are grateful to be marking our 25th year of providing mentorship and hands-on work experience in the visual arts to Sonoma County’s aspiring and emerging young artists! As we reflect on the past 25 years, we feel a deep appreciation for the generous and long-term support our community (you/!) have shown us. We are so excited and curious to see what the next 25 years will bring!

DONATE TODAY to help support our mission!
