WHO ARE WE?
As an extension of Art One Gallery, Inc. in Scottsdale, Arizona, the NCBFST Foundation for Student Artists 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. The NCBFST namesake derives from some of Art One’s closest clientele who have been a staple in our success for so many years. With their support, hundreds, if not thousands of student artists’ lives have been touched.
