ArtFriends is a free art and writing summer program. ArtFriends was designed by alumni board member Tessa Southwell to bring all different types of art to students, who afterwards write a description of or story about their artwork. The first program was held at Harry Bridges Span School. ArtFriends also includes comics and cartooning, as well as crafts. ArtFriends was continued at Richstone Family Center and at the Boys & Girls Clubs by PressFriends student board members.
