Art is Moving was founded by two artists who knew in their hearts that people working together can get more accomplished than two individuals working apart. So, they began a collaboration in 2008 and have created many successful art centered community projects since! And, since three people working together or many people working together can get even more done than just two people, Lisa and Lauren, the co-founders of Art is Moving, work with folks across the globe an an effort to make art happen everywhere and encourage everyone to take an art break!
Art Break Day Grants
Many of the donations from our wonderful supporters go towards working together with individuals interested in hosting an Art Break Day Event in their community. The grants cover art supplies and other necessary items needed to create a success art making space!
In the Classroom
Co-founding Director, Lauren Sharpton, has worked with several professors from her local University to facilitate an “Art Break Day” in the classroom. The feedback is always positive with many students saying, “every professor should work in an Art Break Day Lecture in their syllabus.”
