Supplies and Materials

Art with a Heart projects are innovative, original, and engaging. We not only need paint, markers, paper, and brushes, but we also need gently used furniture (to be painted), fabric, and recyclables (cans, bottles, etc.) We gladly and gratefully accept your donations. Click here to donate your materials. To view our supply wish list, click here.

Volunteers are always needed to work with our staff in helping with classes and programs. No art experience is required, just the desire to bring art to those who need it most. For students who need community service, we need you! There are also teaching opportunities in our various programming sites. We conduct classes on weekdays and weekends, mornings, afternoons, and evenings. We can accommodate any schedule!

If you’re interested in volunteering, please fill out this application and either email to Jaime Kauffman at or send to the Art with a Heart office.
