The Giving Tree brings life enriching services directly to individuals living in affordable housing. Our Art Explorations program breaks isolation and brings diverse individuals together to share a new experience. These classes are a chance for participants to engage with each other, build community, and utilize art as a means of communication.
Participants of Art Explorations work through personal barriers surrounding the creation of art, allowing them to overcome fears and tap wells of strength and creativity that had been previously hidden.


Funding to support our 2016 Branches program was provided by eBay.
Art Exploration classes were funded in part by an Arts Equity Grant from the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
