Art With A Heart
September 20, 2011

This organization's daily classes are carried out by dedicated college students and recent graduates who are passionate about helping young children and teens find a place in life when they have little to no support surrounding them - doing this through art. At a very young age children are given very high quality art supplies to use where their ideas pop off the page and are vivid! The atmosphere of smiles, confidence and calmness fills the classrooms. My 13 year old child is a student of 5 years now and has used more quality supplies and more mediums (printmaking, ceramics, charcoal, various paints, pencil, wax) then a college student. What amazes me most the diversity of students from low income families that this organization serves. They bring together all races creating another level of support. Amazing leader of the organization who digs to find funding for them. We are fortunate to be a part of Art With a Heart.

Art With A Heart
February 26, 2011

I'm a 6th grade student who goes to Sunnyside Elementary, in Lawrence Township. I was introduced to AWAH in 2nd grade by one of my favorite teachers I've ever had, Ms. Zielinski, my art teacher I had at Brook Park Elementary. I love art, it's a fun way to do whatever you want with no guidlines or right or wrong answers. And lastly, I absolutely love working with acrylics!

I think AWAH is a good program because the teachers introduce you to more "in-depth" art projects that are more interesting, and sometimes require new, different materials than the ones we've used during regular art class at school. It is also a great program because I switched schools, but Art With a Heart still kept track of me and invited me back the next year. The fact that they really appreciate their students and their work makes them a really great program.

I would really like if more kids would get the opportunity to participate in Art With a Heart, that way, our class could get a little bit bigger, but all in all, there is really no huge changes that need to be made to me. I love AWAH.
