Art from the Heart is a 501© (3) non-profit organization reaching out to children of low-income families by providing after-school enrichment programs. Our program gives children the opportunity to be actively involved in the arts – they become the artist, the performer, and the audience member.
Art from the Heart was founded in 2007, however the partners, Kathy Eggert and Sheila Jones, possess years of experience working with children and the arts.
Our program is focused on children in need, who might otherwise not have the opportunity to take music, voice, art, dance classes or to see a live performance. Our goal is to empower these children, build their self-confidence, and give them the opportunity to develop an appreciation and love of the arts.
Art From The Heart will locate, coordinate, schedule, oversee and support guest artists. Eggert and Jones will also be using their experience in the arts to bring to life a musical production rehearsed, produced and performed by the students themselves. Eggert and Jones are continuously focused on learning and developing the inner-workings of a successful outreach program.
Art From The Heart works with children in after- school programs that are basically State funded. Sadly, these State funds offer no additional resources to provide art enrichment. Art From The Heart will focus on researching and cultivating potential funding sources
