Anna's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped hire a summer camp instructor to teach more kids art.

Anna's story

Hola! I’m Anna Calonje, founder of Little Artistas. I grew up in a bilingual home in Cali, Colombia in a neighborhood full of artists, educators and environmentalists. I opened Little Artistas because I believe children should have access to creative outlets, safe spaces for self-expression and, most importantly, fun ways to learn! In 2013, we opened our doors with 5 enrolled students. Since then, our amazing team has grown Little Artistas into a space that serves hundreds of wonderful San Francisco families. During the past couple of years we have laughed (a ton), made beautiful art and friendships, practiced lots of Español and had an all around blast! We are delighted we get to nurture children while we help instill in them a life-long love of art.
