Our mission at Hello Art Hatchery is to encourage art in our community by helping to make the supplies and materials needed for creating art accessible to all. I cannot think of another organization in the greater Madison area that is more in tune with our values than Little Picassos.
Little Picassos provides access and opportunity for low-income children to learn about art, artists, and art history. They create a safe and nurturing place that allows children to experiment with art-making materials while also giving them a chance to explore their feelings and grow their sense of self through making art.
This free program is open to children in Kindergarten through 6th grade, and classes are held in two area community centers. As a non-profit, Little Picassos relies entirely on generous grant funding and donations to provide its programming.
I am thrilled to announce that Hello Art Hatchery is a supporter of Little Picassos! We will be paying it forward by sending their team needed materials from donations throughout the year and by providing “graduation” gifts for students finishing the program.
Each year’s program ends with a gallery opening where the children can show off their work and celebrate their accomplishments. This year’s gallery opening will take place on Saturday, June 4, 2022, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the MYArts building, located at 1055 E. Mifflin St. in Madison.
Hello Art Hatchery will provide this year’s gift of an acrylic paint set! We’ll donate approximately 30 new paint sets to celebrate the accomplishment of these children. Each kit costs $15, and 100% of the funds raised for this item in our shop will support Little Picassos.
If you would like to support our cause by purchasing a kit, please order a Little Picasso Gift Kit today!
We hope to see you all at the gallery opening so we can celebrate all that Little Picassos is providing for our community!
