From our Teaching Artist workshops and general celebrations of our Young Artists and our programming, there is never a dull moment with ArtWorks!
This #GivingTuesday make a difference in the lives of children facing illness!
Rowan Zubi showed us how art and dance played an integral role in her healing process and how ArtWorks gave her the community she needed at a crucial time of her illness. This #GivingTuesday let’s bring the healing power of the arts to more Young Artists like Rowan!
May the luck of the Irish be with you on this St. Patrick’s Day! We are seeing the green of spring with this shamrock inspired work from 2009 by Young Artist, Marissa.
It’s as good day as any to create music and art together and find some new friends along the way! Happy #NationalMakeAFriendDay from all of your friends here at ArtWorks. Artwork by Young Artist Ely, age 7 from NYU Langone.
We are proud to collaborate with K-Deer Leggings on their “Colleen Stripe” leggings. The Colleen Stripe is named after K-DEER founder’s niece, Colleen. For each sale of the Colleen Stripe, a percentage of proceeds goes directly to support ArtWorks. We will also be featuring a gift card to K-Deer Leggings in our #ArtWorksAuction. Thank you K-Deer for your partnership and support! #ArtWorksKids

It was an honor to provide this amazing collage workshop, facilitated by ArtWorks Teaching Artist Michael Albert, to Young Artists facing chronic and life-limiting illness at The Ronald McDonald House! A special thank you to Goldman Sachs for volunteering to help ArtWorks!
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!
