I loved working with this wonderful organization two years ago as a freshman. I have always been interested in education and supplemental instruction and volunteering with Art with A Heart allowed me do so. I definitely recommend and have been recommending this to everyone I've met.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

relating with people; both during the program and after in all my relationships. I also developed a sense of responsibility and even an interest in art.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make this more accessible to more schools and children's organizations like the boys and girls club of America, girls inc. and so on

Executive Director, Andrew Lee, was pleasure to work with, clearly had his wits about him and was obviously passionate about his mission. It is a rare combination, indeed. Artworks were beautiful and bountiful and full of children's joy. Wonderful exhibit.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the quality of the works of art produced by children without other means to produce it save for this great organization.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

getting a quality exhibition for the art gallery in the lobby of the Pike Performing Arts Center that just so happens to be many of the children artists first public display. Mutual benefit.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, generous and honest.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

potentially be a major player in the Indianapolis Arts/Education scene. A great business model already exists; widening the scope would be wonderful.

I am the outgoing President of the Art with a Heart Junior Board. I am a senior in high school and have been a member of the Junior Board since my freshman year. I have also been volunteering for 5 years. Being involved with Art with a Heart is the best experience of my life. I have grown so much in my abilities to relate to volunteers, staff, and all of the wonderful kids I have met in the past 5 years. My favorite part is helping the kids with their artwork and seeing how proud they are once they finish a piece. I volunteer weekly and have taught some kids in the class for more than 3 years.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my skills with helping kids and being a good teacher, my public speaking skills in recruiting volunteers, and my grant writing skills in writing grants to receive funds to give gifts of supplies to all the kids.

I really enjoyed working with art with a heart. I found the experience very enlightening and could tell that students need this program. I enjoyed getting to know each of the children and also their attempt to know me. The art projects were surprisingly advanced but the children ate it up. I sometimes wished I had a name tag especially at the beginning. I was actually happy to have smaller class sizes because the day in which we had both the tuesday and wednesday class was a bit to much. The children work at very different paces so it is difficult to keep them together. Loved doing it and I hope others will volunteer as well.

the volunteers had name tags and there were enough supplies. Sometimes I felt as though we were missing some or would run out for the next class.

I had a really great experience at Art With a Heart. The kids seemed very excited to learn about art. The projects were good and showcased a variety of artistic styles and techniques. I have been volunteering for two years at three locations, and everywhere that I have helped, the kids seem to really be enjoying the program. I have even heard that it was the best part of their day. The teachers are nice people who really care about the students and do a lot to help them improve their artistic technique with lessons and one-on-one attention. Overall, Art With a Heart is a great program for all involved.

The Great!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

helping the students one-on-one and getting to know both their names and unique personalities.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very supportive and willing to help the students without being condesceding. They really seemed to care for the kids.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand its services to more schools in the area and purchase more supplies for the students, allowing them to experience an even wider range of art forms.

I absolutely loved working with Art With A Heart. The kids are fantastic (as children always are)and through our time spent on art, a lot of underlying anxieties they had were able to seep out and be handled in a positive way. That was my favorite part; watching these kids learn about themselves and their capabilities through the skill sets of art. I worked at IPS (86?) and I believe it was a really good school choice for this afterschool program. The reasons I gave it 3 stars rather than 5 was because: 1- equipment was needed, If there could be some kind of organized donating for simple things such as pencils, a few scissors, or a few hand held pencil sharpeners... that would help a lot. 2- I felt that other people working with the kids didn't know how, or simply declined to really instruct them. As important as compliments are, I saw that they weren't much taken to heart if the kids didn't feel they'd been challenged at all. 3-I know there was some kind of incident with a child being kicked out of the program, and for legitimate violence I could see that being necessary...but in any other case, these are high-profile candidates for kids you do not want to give up on. 4-I wish the program were longer! But maybe that's just me... =) All in all I am very grateful for this program being made possible.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Many of the children from the class I worked with have a new sense of capability and confidence.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have a specific "expulsion" policy. I don't know if it already does however.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Teaching artistic skills to the kids.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Not always very actively involved, but always very loving and supportive.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Hire some more teachers, Buy necessary resources that it lacks, Add more students for less money ( If it has a cost?)

Ways to make it better...

There had been more resources available. ie- watercolor sets.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting and keeping enough volunteers perhaps?

One thing I'd also say is that...

These kids need very patient and persistent teachers, who will love them, express that love, and are willing to challenge them to their utmost potential and maturity.

I have been a volunteer for Art With a Heart for a little over three years. I went into it mostly just because my friend asked me to, but after that first week of working at the summer day camp, I was in love with what we were doing. Not only did I get to spend hours in an art room surrounded by colors and happy creative chaos, but i got to spend quality time with each of the kids and watch them grow and become enthralled with their work. These kids are such blessings to me and I can't wait to see their sweet faces every class. They love that they get to create art; it brings some of them out of their shells, makes them think, and allows them to have a sense of control and make decisions for themselves. AWAH is a fantastic program, its all about the students and a pure love for art. :)

Fantastic. They are all warm and genuine people, every one of them completely passionate about the work they do. I felt like a part of them the first time I ever walked into the door. The kids love the teachers and truly consider the volunteers friends.
