Art with a Heart’s mission is to enhance the lives of people in need through visual art.


In March of 2000, Randi Alper Pupkin incorporated Art with a Heart from the desk in her law office. Through that first year, from the trunk of her car, Randi took visual art classes to four community sites in Baltimore. Now, Art with a Heart is celebrating its 21st anniversary as an integral organization in the Baltimore community, filling the creative void by providing equitable access to visual art experiences. In the past year, Art with a Heart provided over 14,000 visual art classes, engaged over 3,700 volunteers, installed 39 public art pieces (for a total of 300 to date), provided 110 students with workforce training and continued to enhance the civic participation of students through its Art of Leadership program.
