Share Art Heal Art Experience Kits
We launched the program 6 months ago and have delivered 1200 Art Experience Kits. Each kit contains art supplies and instructions to create an art project. Our first kits went to Dell Children's Medical Center, Ft. Hood's Art Resiliency Room, AGE of Central Texas and SafePlace.
Learn how your group or organization can have a Art Experience Kit Building Day creating kits for people of all ages benefitting our community. Creating the kit is an art experience in itself for our Community Partners. Each kit is designed by the volunteers who choose the colors, package, label and sign them with smiley faces, stars and hearts, lots of hearts.

A Call for Artists and Volunteers
We are looking for Artists who want to do more than donate art for our show. We need Artists to get involved all year long. You understand the healing that occurs when your create art. We provide art supplies and instruction to folks with that intention. We need you to facilitate Art Experience Kit Assembly Days with our community partners. There are some photos of these events here.
And we are also looking for Artists experienced in art instruction with groups of different ages. We are expanding our Group Art Experience Program.
Contact us if you are interested in joining with us for the long haul and would like to donate art or a portion of the sale of your art in our silent auction. You might even be moved to pledge to become a Share Art Heal Artist, donating a portion of the sale of your art to Share Art Heal when you sell a piece. Thank you for sharing the healing power of art with others.
