Colors for Kids Non Profit Organization
The mission of the nonprofit organization Colors For Kids is to create beautiful murals for California schools and hospitals. At our core, we believe access to art increases a child’s ability for strong self-esteem and self-expression and through our mission Colors For Kids delivers murals to kids who may not be in the current position to afford a mural and to enjoy the unique art experience providing through our artists thoughtful, and empathetic designs opening opportunities for kids to see themselves represented by the things they love.
We received funding from schools to paint fun inspirational messages.
Through our mission Colors for Kids delivers murals and mural-creating opportunities to those who may not be able to afford or create one. Especially now, our communities need things that are awe inspiring. We want to make it possible for everyone to feel welcomed through uplifting words and visuals when they enter facilities, buildings, what have you. Instead of monochromatic drab, gloomy walls with nothing to inspire, imagine brighter, more uplifting spaces.
Colors for Kids is a collection of formally trained artists with the desire to better serve their immediate community through art access. We promote art access by transforming private, public, state, and federal spaces from otherwise banal architecture to heartening and memorable spaces. As painters, activists, and environmentalists, we work together to beautify spaces through murals whilst including our community in the processes.
