About ArtFuel

ArtFuel is the vision of two professional artists with the dream of bringing together the Santa Cruz professional art community with local high school kids. We wanted to tap into the synergy of what it takes to be an artist, or industry designer, or game designer and to get kids involved - - to give them goals and dreams and most importantly, their own voice.
