As an extension of Art One Gallery, Inc. in Scottsdale, Arizona, the Art One Foundation launched in 2019 as a non-profit organization dedicated to providing financial assistance to underprivileged student artists. It is a re-invention of Kraig Foote’s first non-profit, the Newlon-Foote Foundation, which began in 2004 with the same purpose: Provide art supplies, tuition assistance, and other art-related expenses to high school and college artists. With the community’s support, hundreds, if not thousands of student artists’ lives have been touched.

Art One Gallery returns 100% of the sales of student artwork directly to the school. They have also shown their support for our arts program through many other avenues such as donating countless art supplies such as fabric, canvas, matte board, and frames. From the beginning of our partnership, they have promoted student artwork which has helped grow our connections with other important resources throughout the valley. These connections allow us to expand our art department while supporting Autism awareness.

Gilbert High School Visual Arts Department has been working with Art One Gallery for as long as I can remember. It has become part of our culture to bring our most promising artists to Art One Gallery for field trips. Kraig and Max have always been enthusiastic about our student visits. The foundation has helped GHS teachers and students by purchasing desperately needed materials and equipment. They have been our greatest supporters in our time of financial and even emotional need. They are a shining example of how a community works together for the betterment of our children and they have the biggest hearts.
