Unique handmade gifts designed and created by HeARTworks students

HeARTwares is Art with a Heart’s social enterprise retail store. HeARTwares is a great place to shop for meaningful gifts, jewelry, and housewares. All of the merchandise was created by participants in Art with a Heart’s workforce development program, HeARTworks, and by committed volunteers. Sale proceeds are shared between Art with a Heart and the artist or community partner.
