ART ENABLES US TO EXPAND OUR CREATIVE LIMITS AND DISCOVER SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT OURSELVES AND THE WORLD AROUND US (UNESCO). THROUGH ART, WE BELIEVE THAT WE CAN TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
By engaging in hands-on art experiences with children and youth in underserved communities, we help them take their first steps toward a journey of self-discovery and reflection. As one develops a stronger sense of self, art becomes a language of hope that allows each child to express themselves and tune into other perspectives. We believe that children who are given an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of thought and expression through art will grow to become well-rounded, creative, respectful, and compassionate members of their community.
