Building 6ix Start Up

Building 6ix is a nonprofit organization with the mission to educate and support 6 innovative teenagers (ages 15-19yo) desiring to pursue art as a career. Without accessibility to coaching, exhibiting, networking, and various other resources, growth as an artist is hindered including the opportunity to continually nurture one’s craft professionally.

To assist, Building 6ix will host a number of pop-up workshops until we have the ability to rent/buy a space of our own. The pop-ups will provide free resources such as a workspace to create, supplies, and mentorship to our spirited teenage artists. In addition to having a safe-haven to nurture their craft, 6 members have the opportunity to showcase their artwork in our 6 bi-monthly exhibitions. The goal is for each young artist to grow and develop a broad portfolio to be used for higher education, entrepreneurship and/or employment opportunities.

We are kindly seeking help for resources to incorporate the 501(c)3, obtain a space, and purchase materials to begin working with our first group of 6 in the next couple of months. This will lead to our very first art exhibition featuring Building 6ix student work!

We would appreciate any type of donation to our cause and hope to celebrate Building 6ix with all of you soon! We just want to make it easier for our them to thrive artistically and get the resources they deserve!
