Help us spread the word!

Since 2014, the dedicated and amazing volunteers of Art for the Journey have delivered art programs designed to promote well-being in underserved populations.  Delivering our first program, an educational experience for incarcerated women, and witnessing the success of combining art making with community engagement, inspired a small group of artists to go forth and share the peace, solace and joy from painting with others.  Six years later, with the help of hundreds of volunteers, Art for the Journey serves school children in underserved areas, people living with dementia and Alzheimers, US veterans living with combat related PTSD, third year medical students, children with juvenile diabetes and more.
