Artstarts Company is a Southern Illinois based, non-profit charitable organization devoted to making the "Arts" accessible to all Southern Illinois children. We connect the community through the arts. We help artists astound the world by sharing what they are capable of becoming.
Our goal is to provide opportunities in the arts to a diverse population with the goal of including those who do not now participate in art programs due to cultural or economic barriers. The programs offered by Artstarts, a non-profit, 501(c)3 charitable organization,
are for residents who reside in the southern 14 counties of Illinois.
