Who We Are

For over 20 years, Art with Heart has been using the healing power of art to help kids in trauma and/or adversity find peace. Our therapeutic, art-based curriculum is a proven path to transforming pain into possibility. Now in our third decade, we’ll help 3.5 million more kids via online learning and collaborative partnerships.

Team

We are artists and dreamers, athletes and activists. Above all, we are passionate about making sure kids have opportunities to express what’s on their minds and in their hearts.
