Create artwork to send to Ukraine

Follow four easy steps below


Please sign Release Form from every person (child and adult) that creates artwork. We do this for two reasons:
We are sending the artwork overseas and once it is overseas, we lose control of it. We would like to share the artwork and pictures from your group on social media and on our website.


This is the fun part! You create the artwork!

Please use standard size paper (8.5 x 11), and your choice of markers, pencils and/or paint.

Need some inspiration? You can see our gallery of artwork that children have created. 


Please share a photo or video of you making the artwork, so we can help tell your story on our website.
