ArtHeart makes it a priority to develop and cultivate partnerships with organizations in the areas of culture, community health, education, professional development and literacy, to name a few.
Throughout the year, ArtHeart also creates opportunities for student placements from local high schools, colleges and universities.
These dedicated individuals prepare for the start of their professional careers by working with our program participants over several months. The student placements bring their own talents, interests and skill set into the mix as they collaborate with ArtHeart staff and volunteers on art projects often with an emphasis on health and social issues.
