Our goal is to reintroduce the world to Black women artists, changemakers, and cultural topics, hence the name Brown Girls Unite. Everyone should see the work of these artists, especially children. So we love to amplify these underrepresented artists in art education, sales, critiques, books, and more.
ALL are encouraged to participate in our various art classes, kids camps, listen to our podcast, and shop in our online art gallery. It is never too late to expand your view on art and try your hand at creating. Just know that the art will be inspired by brown women and girls.
Ready to join the initiative?
