Paint A Smile

Paint A Smile brings art workshops into schools, hospitals and other facilities for kids and youth who are struggling in life. The workshops are taught by professional artists and the programs are custom-made to fit the art curriculum of different grades. Art helps kids and youth develop their confidence, personal-awareness, and self expression. Our workshops allow kids and youth to believe in themselves and see life in a different way that they might not have experienced before. We provide them with a medium and an outlet to embrace their inner artist and explore their dreams.
