Art Bags for Kids was created to help brighten the lives of children who are either limited to their home due to illness or disability, or are not able to regularly participate in social or school art programs as well as their siblings.
Our goal is to help children enjoy the process of creating something beautiful. The power of creativity through the process of art is healing (both physically and psychologically) and motivational.
The Art Bags are big canvas goodie bags filled with fun art supplies and project ideas to help get the creative juices flowing and let children create their own masterpieces. Each bag comes with crayons, colored pencils, paints, paper, clay and lots of other goodies!
We also encourage all artists to submit their artwork to our website to have it published and gain positive feedback for their creations. We hope to receive enough entries in order to be able to hold a real art show for participating children’s artwork in New York City (more information to come!)
The Benefits of Art Bags for Kids
Our mission is to enable children to have artistic opportunities in order to promote self -expression and coping skills. We want children to enjoy art and hope to encourage the children artists. The think that doing art will bring a new dimension to their lives that will be rewarding and fun.
An art instruction manual, developed for the child and caregiver will be included with the bag along with the art supplies to finish one or more creations. The children will be encouraged to take a photo of their art piece and send it back to us for the online art show.
Art Bags for Kids will be run under the Frisbee Foundation. This is a 501 (c) (3) public charity formed in the State of Connecticut.
