Free Arts programs inspire hope in the lives of children who have experienced abuse, neglect, homelessness, and chronic poverty through innovative creative arts programs and positive interactions with caring adult volunteer-mentors. Free Arts works throughout Los Angeles County in residential care facilities, foster family agencies, domestic violence shelters, and community resource centers.
We are always looking for creative, fun-loving adult volunteers who have a deep desire to improve the life of a child by providing them with the time and space to create, explore their imagination, express themselves, and experience the healing power of art.
Our Courthouse Program takes place at the Edmund D. Edelman Children's Court in Monterey Park (Los Angeles), and, on a smaller scale, at the McCourtney Juvenile Justice Center in Lancaster. Help children escape the stress and chaos of their court hearings by creating fun arts and crafts projects with them.
During the Weekly Program, you will volunteer for 8-12 weeks at one of our 40 partner agencies throughout Los Angeles County. This program truly gives you the chance to become a mentor to a small group of 10-15 children who you meet with for 1.5 hours once a week. On top of being a positive adult role model for them, we will work with you to create a curriculum of fun and expressive art projects, ranging anywhere from drawing and painting, to yoga, and anything in between that you would like to share!
The PACT Program stands for Parents and Children Together with art. You and a partner volunteer will work with 5-15 families at one of our 40 partner organizations, promoting family bonding and expression over the course of 8-10 weeks. Much like the Weekly program, you will meet once a week for 1.5 hours, and facilitate family-oriented art projects.
