Heart to Heart with Art

Heart to Heart with Art partners with other artists who volunteer their time and talent to support children’s’ natural creativity. After providing the tools to help kids put color and shape to their own ideas, we have been delighted by the children’s hopes, dreams, and intentions to make the world a better place.

For the Hope Board Project, children are provided with a canvas board, paintbrushes, paints, and an artist to aid with their creations. Then the children are encouraged to show what they want to be when they grow up and how they will change the world. After the completion of the Hope Boards, the children are invited, along with their families and friends, to an official art exhibit celebrating their work.

Through these projects and events it is refreshing to learn that in spite of busy schedules and budget cuts to school art programs, children still love to draw, paint, and create. The children are proud to share their paintings with others in this open environment. Heart to Heart with Art has plans to expand and provide more opportunities and use different art disciplines through the Art in the Park projects.

Thank you Red Rock for providing the space and all the help to make this show happen.
