Art 2 Heart is an ‘art sharing program’ that crosses borders, ages, genders, religions and socio-economic lines. Its sole purpose is to connect underprivileged children with someone else in the world who cares. Through Art 2 Heart, you can give these children something of their own, made just for them, and they have a chance to give back. (Did I mention that Art2Heart was started by my very dear friend Nance Miller? She is rich in both art and heart!)
A dialogue is created through a pen-pal type system using art instead of words. All pictures are to be on standard paper, 8.5 x 11 inches (or A5), for accessibility, ease in mailing and continuity. No e-mail, as we want children to hold and touch a unique creation, just for them. Pictures need not be elaborate at all, and any kind of drawing, rubbing, painting or collage works. The only requirement is that they include “To: (child’s name),” and “From: (partner’s name)” somewhere on the front… Learn more details on the web site, or by contacting Art2Heart, 559 Marin Ave., Mill Valley, CA 94941, USA
