Mint Artists Guild, a Detroit nonprofit with big beautiful plans for creating community art and creative youthful entrepreneurs, encourages youth to grow and transform themselves and their futures. We supply the tools and frame, and our emerging artists offer their creativity, energy and talents. With the coronavirus shutdowns, we currently are offering creative activities for children, youth and families on our blog and coloring pages in creative activities kits created in partnership with Arts & Scraps and Brilliant Detroit.

So please donate so we will grow and offer more opportunities, training and experiences to Detroit youth, as Mint creates more paintings for nonprofits and community art projects.

We are hiring youth now for summer work and learning opportunities!

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.

Give the gift of art to Detroit with a donation.
