Who We Are
We are a mix of educators, creators, entrepreneurs, and dreamers working together for positive change beginning with the Columbus community.
What We Do
Art Your Way Foundation empowers students in the community. Our objective is to celebrate their diverse perspectives through creative expression and spread the YWR mission through central Ohio.
Why We Do It
70.6% of students report being bullied in school (stopbullying.gov). We are not art therapists or mental health professionals (although we do have one on staff). We don't have all the answers.
We DO believe in the power of art as a healing experience as well as a form of communication. We encourage safe, creative self expression. We hope to build a community of students and mentors that raise each other up. Together we believe we can make the world a better place!
