ArtFuel's mission is to educate and inspire young people in a wide variety of art disciplines. We provide productive pathways for the necessary skills and tools that prepare high school students for an arts career.

Our Vision

We believe an artist’s success depends on the strength of their artistic foundation. ArtFuel's vision is to cultivate future artists and designers by developing a strong artistic foundation that will have a substantial influence in getting them into college or trade school, doing well within it, and having a successful career.
