Paint a Happy Summer for 25 Creative Kids in Foster Care!

Donation protected
Paint Happy's mission is to encourage, empower, and equip creative kids to pursue their passions and dreams.

We provide year-round opportunities for all ages to learn at our studio in Linwood, NJ through workshops, classes, and camps. We also offer private paint and drawing lessons both in studio and off-site.

After a great camp season last summer of painting and positivity at our Paint Happy Studio, we were inspired to create more opportunities for young minds to explore their creative potential.

Every year, over 6,000 children and teenagers in various New Jersey communities are placed in foster care by the New Jersey Department of Child Protection and Permanency due to safety concerns in their homes. They are placed in a foster family, with relatives, in group homes, or institutions. These children and teens did not choose to enter foster care and the Paint Happy team believes that their circumstance should not limit their access to fulfilling and enriching educational programming.

That's why we are thrilled to launch this campaign to sponsor 25 local children living in foster care to attend the upcoming Paint Happy Summer Camps; where kids have the chance to unleash their imagination, develop new skills, and make lasting memories!

Your generosity and support directly ensures a local child's access to this enriching experience, inspiring and enabling them to continue pursuing their passions!

And by supporting this campaign, you are not just helping to send these 25 kids to camp - you are investing in their future, nurturing their creativity, and fostering a love for the arts.

We encourage you to learn more about us on our website . Please don't hesitate to stop by our studio or give us a call with any questions about this campaign, our workshops, memberships, or open studio hours!

Join us in spreading happiness and creativity by supporting our campaign through a donation or by sharing our story.

Your contributions will not only make our dream a reality but will also empower the children to dream big and reach for the stars in their own endeavors. Together, we can make a difference and inspire the next wave of young art entrepreneurs and innovators.

And please come visit us in person at our studio in Linwood, New Jersey; or give us a call! We'd be happy to hear from you!

THANK YOU for being a part of this incredible journey towards making dreams come true.

Stay Happy!
