Fund the Lab: A Recording Studio for All!



Donate today to help us build a studio for all!


Gold Vinyl Record ($100) 


Donate $100 to get your name on a gold vinyl record that will hang in the Art as Mentorship studio, The Lab. Our young artists will get to see YOUR name as they create the world’s next Grammy winning hit. Be 1 of only 25 names on the record! 


Platinum Vinyl Record ($250) 


Donate $250 to get your name on a platinum vinyl record that will hang in the Art as Mentorship studio, The Lab. Our young artists will send you a video “thank you” as well as a behind the  scenes look into what they are creating in the space YOU helped fund. Be 1 of only 15 names on the record!


The young artists we support don’t have access to professional resources to develop their songwriting in a studio setting. So in 2020, we got to work building The Lab, a music studio in the InterUrban Arthouse in downtown Overland Park, Kansas. The principles behind The Lab are guided by our C.A.R.E. method for empowering students to synthesize their own path to creative and professional success. The Lab will be equipped with professional tools to help young artists gain real-world skills.


The six-hundred square foot space will serve as a proof of concept to demonstrate what a full Art as Mentorship production studio and media lab could do for young artists.


We need your help in finishing The Lab. Have your name or organization engraved on a gold or platinum record hanging in the studio.  


Together we can MAKE WAVES.


We are all mentors and students.

Art is imperfect, progress is perfection.

Vulnerability is powerful and to be celebrated.

Encourage those around you.

Self discovery is a worthwhile journey.


Help us empower young people, through music, to write their own success story.


Art as Mentorship envisions an inclusive community where historically underrepresented artists are emboldened to raise their voices through music. 


We will transform young artists through access to world-class mentorship, real-world skill development and mental health support. We believe the future will be made brighter by enabling the healing qualities of music to unite us.
