It gives us great pleasure to announce that ArtWorks was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts grant! After an extensive application process we will receive funding to provide arts programming for our Young Artists with limited mobility and medical issues through the ArtWorks Laser Painting Program facilitated by ArtWorks Teaching Artist Deborah Dawson. Thank you to the NEA for the support of our programs that provide children and young adults facing chronic and life-limiting illnesses, and the siblings and families of these children, access to arts programs that use art to heal, art to inspire and art to empower!
The ArtWorks NEA Grant was recently featured in North Jersey’s newspaper The Record! Click here to find out more about this feature!
