Art Not Shame offers tools and programming for youth and other community members to express and address mental health challenges through collaborative artā€making and storytelling. We do this by hosting workshops in partnership with schools, local organizations, and established community health programs.

Art Not Shame workshops provide participants with a range of creative mediums to explore and share their ideas and experiences -- to create Art, Not Shame -- our name and our mission.

We are artists and educators.

We have deep roots in mental health advocacy, education, and community-making through art. 

We are invested in keeping the mental health conversation going and advocating for the value of art in creating spaces of acceptance, community, and transformation.
