Art with Heart’s purpose is to spread the healing power of creative expression to kids facing trauma or adversity. Coming soon, we will be relaunching our website which will serve as a forum for greater connection and inspiration.

We know that evolution and self-expression go hand in hand. As we enter our third decade, we are evolving our brand expression to represent the greater possibility and momentum experienced through partnership. It will be a place where you can read stories of incredible personal growth, experience the impact that your engagement and support have on kids around the world, and connect with others.

Direct Service Program Volunteers

Thursdays, 10-11am
Every other Thursday Art with Heart leads a program with pre-school aged kids at Childhaven on Broadway. Co-facilitate this ongoing program and help kids become kindergarten ready through our Magnificent Marvelous Me! program.

Our opportunities to volunteer with children using expressive arts are divided into our programmatic schedule. Please note that due to the sensitive nature of our work and a high volume of applicants, we are selective with our direct service volunteers. One of the greatest benefits our programs offer to children is regular meetings with committed adults. This stable environment allows children and teens to become comfortable talking about their emotional struggles. For this reason, to volunteer you must be over 21, be able to commit to 20+ hours per month for six months, and have reliable access to transportation. If asked to participate you will be asked to provide two references, complete a background check, and participate in a program training.
