Creating a Community of Belonging

Studio Sprout’s vibrant studio space is a place where people of all races, religions, abilities, and gender identities come together to create. Art is a powerful vehicle to explore culture and history.

Our goal is to create a space of belonging where representation matters. You can expect to see themes of social justice woven seamlessly into our art curriculum.

Studio Sprout believes in giving children agency. We support free thinkers and creators in hopes they will grow into powerful change makers.

Addressing historic and structural inequity through our scholarship program is a concrete part of an effort for racial and social justice for all.

Part of equity, diversity, inclusion and justice work includes a policy of openness. Studio Sprout invites you to share ideas, concerns, or feedback at any point. It is our goal to be constantly improving, growing and making this world a better place for all.
