Become An Artist

How to Join Us

If you’re interested in raising money for social causes and for getting your work out there, feel free to apply as an artist! To get started, email us at youngartistsdrawingforacause@gmail.com or DM @officialdrawforacause on Instagram and answer the following:

Tell us a bit about yourself
• List a few causes you really care about
• How did you find us?
• Attach example(s) of your digital artwork


After that, join our Discord Server. An organizer should get back to you as soon as possible. Depending on your application, you may be waitlisted or accepted as an artist.

Artists must be at least 13 years old and have a parent/guardian with a PayPal account which funds can be transferred to. If an artist cannot use a parent/guardian’s PayPal, funds are transferred to the lead organizer (currently Alyelle) who will keep track of how much money they are keeping for the artist until the artist turns 18 or older and get PayPal. Keep in mind the transaction method may change. All commissions have to be appropriate for all ages; no offensive content, no 18+ content, and no violence/blood.

Draw For A Cause does not discriminate against anyone by gender identity, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or abilities.

Why You Should Join Us

By joining us, you are helping our community and improving others’ lives through art. Donating to food banks, charity, and causes such as Black Lives Matter, Stop Asian Hate, and LGBTQ+ Rights is very helpful and impactful. Additionally, you can earn volunteer hours by asking an organizer to e-sign your volunteer forms.

We would sometimes host events exclusively for artists such as art competitions (with a variety of prizes), ten-minute art challenges, and Secret Santa events every December.
