 Matching Fundraiser - 
Support our work at Roosevelt before time's up!

Time is running out to help us take full advantage of our matching donation from the Standish Ericsson Neighborhood Association. Your donation will double until we reach our goal of $500 to support our work at Roosevelt High School. 

Eight Health Careers students have worked with us to design an initial pilot that is open to all students on Tuesday mornings during Advisory period. Funds for this initial pilot will help heARTS provide the necessary tools and support to grow this pilot into a full fledged program for the 2019-20 school year. Your donation will provide stipends for our student leaders, materials for the space and more.

 Community Mosaic Days 

We are excited to welcome the Semilla Center for Healing and the Arts to join us on Thursdays during the month of May to create a beautiful mosaic for the studio. Our Youth Advisory Board is working with them on the design, and we're inviting the whole community in to piece it together!

Join us during our Open Studio hours on May 16, 23, and 30 from 3:30-9pm. Fees will be waived to participate in this special activity!

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

 Join our team of Community Ambassadors! 

We need your help raising awareness about our programs and strengthening community support. We're currently building a team of volunteer Community Ambassadors who will play a vital role in representing heARTS at local events and functions, speaking about our work to community groups about the importance of our mission and helping to secure resources.

As part of the team, you'll be alerted to upcoming community events, be asked to help share our work through social networks, and help with flyer distribution for each new season. We are currently accepting applications until May 15. Training and additional resources will be provided to support you in this role. Check out the
complete job description and apply.


 Save the Dates! 

We've been doing some spring cleaning and have an array of supplies, from the ordinary to the absurd that will be on sale at the studio June 7th from 1-7pm and June 8th from 8a-2pm. All sales benefit our programs.

When the sale ends on June 8th, we'll keep our doors open for an Ice Cream Social Fundraiser from 3-5pm. Join us to celebrate the official start to summer and raise funds for our Youth Advisory Board. In the coming year, we will be adding both community service and art-focused field trips to their leadership experience and need additional to cover transportation and fees for these activities.
