“In operation since 2009, Art Without Limits was created as a result of the experience between founder Julie McLeod and Jackie Rotman. Julie recognized the power of mentorship to advance the careers of artists in ways that could not be accomplished in traditional academic settings.
After listening to the needs of artists and arts leaders around Santa Barbara, she established Art Without Limits with the mission to provide artists of any discipline with the guidance they need to thrive as successful professionals in the arts. AWoL would seek to become a catalyst to further the vision of artists are flourishing in every community.
Today, AWoL is best known for strategically matching arts and business professionals with emerging artists for intensive, one-on-one, free mentorships. Meanwhile, we offer BizArts (Business Workshops), Fiscal Sponsorships, Art Career Day Conferences, and career-launching Gallery Exhibitions and performance opportunities for emerging artists across Santa Barbara County.
Guided by the principal that “GIVING BEGETS GIVING,” all program participants are expected and encouraged to give back to their mentors, AWoL itself, and to the future generation of artists. With proper training, support and guidance, talented artists can flourish in their careers and strengthen our communities. When artists thrive, communities thrive.”
