Non-Profit Volunteer Art Work
Studio Art 101 believes in giving back to the community through art. So we have sought out
art related organizations and gotten involved.
HopeWorks formerly known as the Domestic Violence Center acts an an advocate for victims of domestic and sexual abuse. The mission of HopeWorks is to eliminate the threat of sexual and domestic violence in Howard County, Maryland. I volunteer as a Residential Assistant, this includes helping with projects at the HopeWorks residences such as cleaning, painting, organizing and grocery shopping. I hope to bring collaborative art projects to the residences as well.

Art With A Heart
Art With A Heart (AWAH) provides interactive art classes to many sites in Baltimore including
group homes, homeless shelters, and community centers. AWAH also has a great summer
job program for Baltimore teens. They are paid to create works of art to sell locally and at the
annual AWAH fundraiser. You can find their work at the Art With A Heart booth at Artscape
every year. AWAH's mission is to "bring the joy and benefit of art to those who need it most."

The Creative Alliance
The Creative Alliance is another wonderful arts based community organization. It is a large
arts center located at the old Patterson Theater in Baltimore. It has galleries, they offer art
classes, and there are artists in residence there. The annual fundraiser is a blast and there
are always fun events going on from movie screenings to art shows.
