At ART of Hearts, Inc., we believe that everyone deserves creative resources and opportunities. Each year we visit a developing nation and partner with schools and other organizations within impoverished communities to bring children the outlet of art.
"We strongly believe in the therapeutic power of art and the outlet it provides!"
We not only donate art supplies to each school we partner with, but we also provide specialty lectures and activities tailored to the needs and experiences of the communities and children we are working with. We ask children to explore their inner selves – their feelings, perceptions and dreams. While these workshops also involve learning practical art skills and techniques, the emphasis is predominantly on inner development – and the use of visual and performing arts as an expressive and therapeutic means of release. In addition, we conduct teacher-training programs to train teachers on how to employ arts education to encourage the personal and social development of their students.
