Art with a Heart’s mission is to enhance the lives of people in need through visual art. This year, Art with a Heart will deliver over 1,400 visual art programs in group homes, community centers, shelters, schools, hospitals and senior facilities. It is in these programs that disadvantaged children, adolescents and adults are given the opportunity, in a safe and stable environment, to embrace the creative process and gain skills that can be a catalyst to help transform their lives. For many participants, the Art with a Heart class is the first time they have feelings of pride, accomplishment and hope.
