About

Want to make a difference this summer???? Say no more......ChopArt is sending out a call to everyone who wishes to make a difference in the lives of homeless youth in the Atlanta area through Camp Envision, a first of its kind summer camp exclusively for unaccompanied youth.


ChopArt, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is helping homeless youth express themselves through art. Through our programming we provide opportunities for community organizations and professional artists to collaborate with our youth participants to create artwork and art projects helping to foster awareness of the homeless situation in Atlanta, generate funds for our homeless youth participants and their families, and provide a platform of positive and creative reflection and self-reflection for our youth.

Camp Envision
