PIECES is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization that serves young adults ages 18 through 25. Our mission is to empower young adults through the arts. By allowing them to express themselves, PIECES taps into the opportunities that creativity unlocks, harnessing growth while building important life skills. Through the arts, we encourage young adults to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible adults, and encourage an interest in entrepreneurship and learning.
Through the arts, PIECES nurtures inspired artists and helps them discover hidden talents and explore new ones. Members are presented with opportunities to network with community leaders for potential careers, business and educational opportunities. Our belief is that each individual carries artistic talents. All one needs is the right environment, the resources and inspiration to awaken them, and that is exactly what PIECES strives to provide.
"I'ma go piece!" is a common phrase used by young graffiti artists. This phrase inspired the vision for PIECES and its mission to develop modern-day Picassos. We offer artists of all genres the tools to develop their skills, prepare them for work, and keep them on a positive path to a fulfilling life.
We are a resident organization at Buckwild Gallery in Los Angeles, near Santa Monica, Venice, Culver City and Mar Vista. Members travel from all areas of Los Angeles County to learn and create at PIECES.
