Art with a Heart provides Baltimore's vulnerable children, youth, and adults with 10,000 visual art classes a year in schools, community centers, group homes, shelters, permanent housing facilities, hospitals, and senior facilities.
Since 2000, Art with a Heart has provided Baltimore’s vulnerable children, youth, and adults with access to creative, educational, and positive programming, caring and nurturing adults on a consistent basis, and the chance to embrace new ideas and skills in a safe and structured environment. In an effort to achieve its mission of enhancing the lives of people in need through visual art, Art with a Heart works to harness the benefits of arts education to cultivate positive changes in behavior and general attitudes among its participants. Art with a Heart is steadfast in its commitment to help nurture and grow its students and encourage them to become better communicators, problem solvers, and community members.
