How we function
Charitable Arts is comprised of high school student volunteers from different schools who share a common goal to improve the lives of children in need. We locate and work with local and international organizations that are dedicated to helping the children of impoverished communities. Charitable Arts hosts art days where the student volunteers work with the children to create some amazing paintings. Later we hold fundraising events to auction the paintings and sell other articles, such as cards, which are made using the art work of the children. The proceeds from the sales are donated to the sponsoring organization in a ceremony attended by the children artists. Our aim is to provide the children with a creative escape from the rigors of their daily lives, but more importantly, to give them a sense of empowerment by showing them how they have helped those, that help them.
Volunteer, Donate, Start a local chapter, or be a sponsor!
Charitable Arts is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that helps underpriveleged children through the use of art.
At Charitable Arts we believe that through the creative use of art, we can make a difference by helping children, help themselves.
