“DrawBridge is truly amazing.”
Since 1989, DrawBridge has inspired over 35,000 children who are underserved or experiencing homelessness through weekly expressive art programs offered free of charge right where these kids live – in dozens of homeless shelters, safe houses and other low-income facilities throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Through drawing, painting, clay, collage, and more, children ages four and up are given the opportunity to explore the playful creativity that is so important to healthy development.
DrawBridge provides children who are underserved or experiencing homelessness with the opportunity to tap into their creativity, build self-confidence and experience joy through expressive art.
DrawBridge sees expressive art as a way for kids to connect with their communities and a wider world of possibilities made accessible through creativity and self-confidence.
The guiding force behind DrawBridge is a profound respect for the innate wisdom of young people. We nurture that wisdom through art and creativity. We believe that being understood and valued gives children the freedom to grow.
Inspiring Creativity, Joy and Self-Confidence
