As an art-loving Senior in high school, I’m extremely happy to be involved in Art With a Heart. I've been with the organization for about two years now, both volunteering in the classroom, and fundraising and recruiting volunteers as a member of the Junior Board, and I have nothing but good things to say about Art With a Heart. Art With a Heart gives its kids an opportunity to exercise their creative minds, and the finished art projects give each child a feeling of success and confidence. Enter an Art With a Heart classroom and you’ll likely see happy little hands hard at work on a project, such as the yarn bowls made during the 2013 summer program, or selecting crayons to make a blank white paper blossom into a unique illustration during a free drawing opportunity. When volunteering in the classroom and on the Junior Board, it's clear to me that the staff and board members are truly dedicated to the cause and care deeply about the children they're serving. The teachers treat each student with respect and affection, supporting them in their artistic process. I cannot overemphasize, Art With a Heart is a wonderful nonprofit.

I got the chance to work with Art With a Heart during a really cool motoring exhibit that reached out to a variety of different audiences that may not usually have a regular exposure to an organization like Art With a Heart. The interactions I had with the staff and volunteers of Art With a Heart left me with a truly positive outlook on their organization and what they do for the youth of Indianapolis!

I first became involved with Art With A Heart when I was a sophomore in high school, and it has changed my life. By serving as both a Junior Board member and a two-year summer volunteer, I was able to work firsthand with the staff and experience what was going on behind-the-scenes. My time spent volunteering in an Art With A Heart classroom in a homeless shelter has been a blessing as I've gotten to know kids who thrive doing art in a way that is totally unexpected, even to them. Art With A Heart provides kids (many of whom do not even have access to simple materials like crayons at home) with the opportunity to genuinely understand and explore different art forms, and that is incredible. Moreover, I have loved my time with Art With A Heart because of its fantastic people. The staff is wonderful, full of quirky and passionate people who are no-holds-barred dedicated to their cause. Their enthusiasm is infectious.

Expand...but of course, this takes time and effort and is already underway.

Art With a Heart is truly amazing. They are dedicated to making a difference, and they do every day. Not only are they passionate and intuitive to community needs, they are also extremely organized and get things done. I always look forward to working with them.

Hello, I'd like to say AWAH is a great program for children of all ages and parents who are involved in their kids development. You never know how much talent your child really has until you get them involved in something educational, exciting, challenging and fun all at the same time. That is what AWAH has been for me and my daughter's experience and it's been our 1st year with the group, my daughter Maxene has learned a lot with the group, she's 12 yrs old and loved the different projects AWAH presented each weekend, techniques learned aside from painting. I encourage anyone with a child interested in art, painting, drawing or culturally inclined to bring their child to AWAH program. I'm the parent of an AWAH student and I LOVE being involved with their activities and working with the children. Happy 10 yrs AWAH and many more to come with future artist. Lyz Wilkins

I was the summer intern for two months in 2011, and Art With A Heart is really a spectacular organization. The staff truly cares about the children that they work with, and they really want to make a difference in their lives. Since the children that AWAH works with are all at-risk, it's essential that they continue to be exposed to organizations like AWAH in order to give them a positive outlet for their emotions.

The Great!

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

I worked alongside the Executive Director and two other full-time staff members who are also teachers for AWAH. I was able to go into the classroom and experience the services that AWAH provides. It was a very eye-opening experience; so many of these kids really rely on art to give them a positive outlet and something safe and fun to do.

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

Give it a bigger venue; AWAH is actually changing locations in December of 2011, though, so that will soon be changed! I'd love to see them expand more and provide classes in their own facility.

They have created wonderful programs for children who truly enjoy coming to their classes. You can see the joy in the kids eyes when they are working on the projects developed for them. The staff is wonderful and you can tell they put their hearts and souls into everyday!

I had a wonderful time volunteering for Art with A Heart. The teachers that I worked with were amazing. They were fun and always had creative ideas for the students. It was a great experience to see all the student's artwork and see how they progressed throughout the year. Overall, I was more eager to help out here than other places I have volunteered at. The teachers and other volunteers really cared about their work and students, and it was a wonderful environment to be in.

I have volunteered as a photographer for the Art With A Heart organization as a Volunteer requirement for a photography course, and have continued to do so after the required time/project was complete. The people are lovely, and I think what the organization is about is so important with today's youth, and that is promoting artistic practices in their day-to-day lives! :-)

The Great!

the observation of the children while they work on their art, and later see the product of what they made.
