Mint Artists Guild teaches business, career and life skills to teen visual artists. Our priorities are creativity, inclusivity, youth development and economic activity.

So buy from us at the Funky Ferndale Art Fair Sept. 20 to 22, ; hire us to create a painting or a mosaic - and donate so we grow to support more teens. Join us at our gala Mint Masterpieces on Oct. 19; a limited number of tickets are now available.

As you give, you launch creative careers, support youth development and community art - and develop the creative future of Detroit.

Mint creative summer workers enjoy break time in Palmer Park. Help us hire more young artists. Make a monthly donation today!

“Best summer job ever!”
– Seyi Akintoroye, who worked for Mint in summer 2019.
