The Art Angels for Budding Artists (AABA) Program is a committee of the Sanford Brush & Palette Club (SBPC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization incorporated in the state of North Carolina.
The AABA was formally established in 2011 to assist the Art Teachers in our Lee County Public School System to successfully complete classroom projects and explore opportunities in the realm of visual art with their students. This is accomplished through Special Project Grants or Supplemental Art Supply Grants.
AABA also offers young artists (grades 6-12) who show exceptional talent or promise an opportunity to receive art supplies and/or instruction. The student requires an unrelated sponsor who is either a Visual Arts Teacher in a Lee County Public School or an SBPC Member to complete the application.
The AABA program is funded entirely through donations and income from our annual Art Angels Raffle.
