Online After School Art Classes
Join us as we create and have fun from 3:30-5:30pm EST in a safe environment, from the comfort of your own home. Our sessions are catered to children aged 5-10ish and we hold to the fact that your child will grow confident in their creative expression and in their day-to-day life all while giving back to the community! All proceeds are donated to drawchange, a nonprofit organization that provides art therapy-based programs to impoverished children around the world.
All online classes are led by our trusted, background checked, art teachers, and all projects are planned around our core competencies: Imagination, Collaboration, Empowerment, Dream-Building, Self-Esteem, Creation, and Stress Relief. Click to learn more about our curriculum!
Class sizes are kept small for optimum enjoyment: 5-10 campers!
What will my child create during Art Class?
Your child will be entertained and work alongside new friends. Classes will start with a fun ice breaker and mindfulness, dance breaks, costume parties, and fun games alike will be had! Your child will create a body of work that is not only meaningful to them but one they are proud to hang on their wall!

I have been volunteering with drawchange since 2016 in many different capacities. I have volunteered at special events and drawchange’s beyond borders trip to Ethiopia. Most recently, I am a Program Leader at a local shelter and led and assisted in all the summer camp sessions we had last summer. I am passionate about drawchange because it is impactful on children’s lives. All children are in need of creativity and healthy outlets for their emotions. I am excited that by offering camp virtually we will be able to reach so many more children than we ever have previously.
I’ve been involved with drawchange for a year in a few different roles; Art Camp volunteer, shelter Program Lead, and Intern. I volunteer because it is amazing to see the ongoing empowerment and transformation of children through drawchange. Homeless children get the opportunity for growth, development, and stress-relief. They are equipped with tools to cope with life's trauma. I volunteered at art camp over the past year and it is truly an incredible experience. I was bummed when I realized in-person sessions weren't possible this summer. Virtual art camp is a great way for children to be engaged and enriched during this unique time.
"Ms. Jeenie" is the founder and CEO of drawchange, an organization she created to share the beauty of art with impoverished children around the world. The arts greatly impacted who Jennie is and made a huge difference in her life. She often says, "Art saved my life"! Jennie still very much remains on the ground working with children. Her dream is that every child sees firsthand the beauty they are capable of producing through art. Through this capability, their self-esteem is naturally boosted and they are empowered to be all they could be! Jennie will be sitting it on as many of our Virtual classes as she can. Click here to learn more about Jennie and her passion.
When I started volunteering for drawchange, I saw kids who were previously shy and quiet, depressed, and angry transform into those who are more talkative, confident, and happy. As a person with a psychology education, I know how much trauma can affect the developing brain. I also know that the child’s brain is very malleable and resilient. We can combat the effects of trauma in their lives! I feel like drawchange is a part of me now, and I am a part of the #drawchangefamily. I came into the organization expecting to make a difference, but I was not expecting that the organization would make such a difference in my life. Drawchange has helped me to grow as a person.
