RAW'S mission is to IGNITE the DESIRE to CREATE and the CONFIDENCE TO SUCCEED in underserved youth.

Our kids tell us that it doesn’t matter if you are 7 or 17. When you walk into RAW for the first time, there is one response: I want to belong here. We create a culture where every artist feels welcomed, connected, and committed to our community. RAW is there for kids when they struggle with a piece of art or a piece of their lives.
Using a wide range of media from paint to film, fabric to found objects, kids create art that cannot be ignored because of its quality and content. Their art speaks. It reveals a meaningful part of them that needs to be seen and heard, without being judged.
