Paint a Picture

I want to touch people with my art. I want them to say 'he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.'- Vincent van Gogh

Art is something that has been held in high esteem for thousands of years. As many of us have experienced, the beauty of art can be breathtaking. The colors, the shapes and the different techniques very easily capture the visual mind. If you have the ability to create art, why not use your talents to help others or show someone how much you care?


A hand-painted picture is a gift that will be long-cherished by the receiver and is sure to make that person feel special. Giving someone a handmade gift can be a great way to express yourself and strengthen the connection you feel to the person you’ve made it for.

Step It Up

Are you a professional artist? Offer to paint a mural or artwork for a community recreation center or a local school or church. Or volunteer to do art therapy with alzheimers patients at a local nursing home. Are you a kid who’s still in school? Paint a picture for a parent or grandparent for their birthdays, or just as a surprise!

Keep It Simple

If you’re not the artistic type, you can still use your abilities to help others in your family or community. Perhaps you’re a great cook, or handy with tools. There are tons of great ways for each of us to share our talents with others.
