About Art Feeds
Art Feeds began in one classroom with one child – a little boy who wasn’t being fed at home and who was not only lethargic and struggling with academics but also had incredibly low self-esteem. As Meg began doing art lessons with him, he showed tremendous progress through expression; art was feeding him in a way that was just as essential as food.
The art lessons quickly grew from just him to more classrooms and more children. So in order to fund the supplies she needed, Meg printed and sold shirts that featured “Art Feeds” and a blank written by that original little boy, paired with his handprint, which ended up with a heart in the middle and later became the Art Feeds logo. The blank was open for the buyer to fill in with whatever “Art Feeds” for them. The simple t-shirt project grew far beyond expectations and the story of this little boy spread as did the impact and reach of Art Feeds programs.
Art Feeds believes all children are artists. They feed creative development and facilitate emotional expression in children through art and community. To do this, they provide free therapeutic art and creative education programs within schools and children’s organizations by mobilizing teams of community members to bring all forms of art into classrooms.
Internships are available and volunteers are needed during the Spring semester. You can learn more about Art Feeds here.
