Every month, we at The Ozarks Connection try to shed light on a local charity. It’s our goal to share their mission to help support others in our community and to give you an opportunity to get involved. Art Feeds, exists to feed creative development and facilitate emotional expression in children through art and community.
I first remember seeing this local charity on tv sharing their “major trauma” curriculum which was developed in the aftermath of the 2011 tornado in Joplin and was impressed by the impact that this organization was having on local children. Since then, their programs have gone national and there are plenty of ways our community can help this local charity continue their mission.

The Mission of Art Feeds: Art Feeds believes all children are artists. We exist to feed creative development and facilitate emotional expression in children through art and community. To do this, we provide free therapeutic art and creative education programs within schools and children’s organizations by mobilizing teams of community members to bring all forms of art into classrooms.
This organization is based in Joplin, MO but has worked with schools and children in St.Louis, Jackson, N.J., Estes Park, Colo., and Ghana, West Africa. All Art Feeds Educators are community members that have been trained in the Art Feeds Method and by a mental health professional. Each educator is committed to facilitate emotional expression and invest in each child. Classroom ratio is 1 educator to every 4 students.
Since their start in 2009 they have been committed to using 100% of general donations to serve students in the Art Feeds programs. That’s where you come in…they need your help to continue their work in improving the lives of children locally, nationally, and internationally.
