What People Are Saying
"I love SKETCH because it is linked to so many of my passions: the street community, creativity and identity."
— Amelia, Donor, Read More
"Right after my shift would end at 3pm, I’d get on my bike and go straight to SKETCH. I’d do three or four things: make a meal, volunteer, screen print a few shirts, and record a song. I would leave and think, ‘wow, this was a full day of art!'"
— Ezekiel, past SKETCH participant , Read More
"“With support from the SKETCH family, I was able to discover my skills on my terms. I can’t even think about what my life would be without SKETCH being there.”"
— Ella, past SKETCH participant
