began in 2008 as a series of youth creative workshops held in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami and Tokyo. Working with public school art programs and youth mentoring organizations, the goal of Make Something!! is to partner world-renowned creative personalities with young aspiring artists with the intention of giving hands-on practical skills. Our focus is on connecting the ideas behind DIY (do-it-yourself) creativity with the artists of tomorrow incorporating elements of art, design, music, fashion and film into our programs. Since its inception, over 2,000 high school students have now taken part in Make Something!! workshops. We have plans to open a Los Angeles-based permanent creative schoolhouse in the near future.
