Review for Art With A Heart, Indianapolis, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a nonprofit marketing and development consultant with more than a decade of experience specifically in the arts and arts education programs. I have worked with the Art with a Heart staff and board for the last year and a half in a consulting and advisory role. The organization has grown tremendously during that time and I know that they are making solid and sound business and program decisions that equate to lean operation and reaching more people with their programs and services.

Art with a Heart is a life-changing organization for underserved youth. The programs are not focused just on artistic product but on personal growth and development - meaningful engagement and personal development through arts education.

I have been so moved by the work of the organization that, after offering advice many times from a consulting standpoint, I found myself giving of my own time and money to help the staff better achieve their ambitious goals. The organization is one of the most well run I have encountered in Indianapolis and I am honored to be associated with their powerful mission to provide hands-on visual arts experiences that educate and inspire at-risk children. Those who have not witnessed their work yet are missing a remarkable opportunity.

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

continue the expansion of programs to reach more at-risk youth, and continue being deliberate and diligent about spreading the word of these powerful programs.
