Art Feeds has reached 11,500 children to date and will start this Fall semester with 3,800 students on our weekly roster. Art programs provide 30-60 minutes of instruction weekly to the schools we serve to create a stable and growing relationship with the students through therapeutic art and creative education. Art Feeds strives to cultivate an environment where students are empowered to express themselves, thereby mobilizing creative healing. Students are exposed to painting, drawing, dancing, sculpting, writing, music, photography, performing arts, and more. We use these forms of expression to help the students explore, express and integrate emotional expression through visual, performing and creative arts. Our programs and processes are created to facilitate healing as well as cognitive and developmental growth.
Art Feeds strives to live by the lessons the children teach us, these are to- Love Naively. Give Generously. Be Foolishly Compassionate.
