  • Mentor and develop the holistic artist- empowering artistry to be the catalyst for personal growth, leadership and social action.
  • Transform the myth of the “starving artist” by creating confidence, belief, and a voice that matters.
  • Create a world where all artists can prosper through their refined artistic vision.


Our legacy is developing artists who make a difference in the world and impart their art and purpose on the world as a legacy of their own.  Artists who are articulate, inspired and inspiring, innovating their ability to make a difference in the world with their art.  We are an evolving organization with home bases opening across the globe.

The Artist Mentorship Program
Fundraiser Events

Using targeted coaching to train artists to value their art and think like entrepreneurs, Art And Action uses the creation of a personalized fundraiser event to teach artists to speak their vision powerfully, create opportunities to showcase their work, and invite others to do so.  These events are made successful by each individual or group in the program communicating effectively, inviting guest speakers, connecting to non profit organizations dedicated to their cause, and showcasing their art and inviting colleagues to showcase their own work as well.  This Artist Mentorship Program teaches the fundamentals of how to raise money for your current project or idea, connect your art to social cause, and enroll your community in the possibility of your art and impact it can make.   CONTACT Jones Welsh or Anne-Marie Talmadge to setup your Mentorship and Fundraising Event, and click HERE to see our PAST projects.
