Target demographics: children in developing countries

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: do an Art Supply Drive, facilitate a local art workshop or help with administrative tasks.

Mission:
The Colored Pencil Project was created to increase the access of art supplies to children in developing countries by distributing art supplies, specifically colored pencils and paper, and providing art curriculum to children in various orphanages, schools and rural villages. Art is extremely important developmentally for children; countless studies have proven that children visualize as a way of understanding things and that they need a way to express their encounter with the world. The Colored Pencil Project believes that art is the perfect way for children to communicate their experiences, fears, and most importantly their dreams. By bringing the dreams belonging to these children back to the United States, in the form of pictures, The Colored Pencil Project hopes to foster global understanding and goodwill.
Results:
800 children in South Africa
1000 children in India
local workshop initiative reaching children in the Boston area
