Free Arts of Arizona says
The Art from the Heart art auction is an annual event benefiting Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona. It is an evening of art, music, food and drink: a celebration of the power of art to heal children, and to transform their lives.

Some of Arizona’s most esteemed artists including Frank Ybarra, Ed Mell, Jim Waid, Mayme Kratz, Annie Lopez, and Kevin Caron, have donated their original works of art to help raise money and awareness for Free Arts programs.

Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona is a nonprofit organization collaborating with more than 30 child welfare agency partners (foster care group homes, residential treatment centers and shelters) to provide therapeutic arts programs for children of all ages.

Since 1993, Free Arts has used art as a tool to help more than 95,000 abused and homeless children gain self-confidence, learn to express their emotions in positive ways and build trusting relationships with adults.

Mentors are the key to helping children heal. Each year more than 800 volunteer mentors provided emotional support and safety to children who have experienced trauma. Free Arts mentors engage in over 10 hours of screening and training focused on positive youth development techniques and trauma informed care. Their efforts build resiliency in children and help them begin to heal from their traumatic experiences.
