The Colored Pencil Project was created to increase the access of art supplies to children in developing countries by distribuiting art supplies, specifically colored pencils and paper, and providing art currriculum to children in various orphanages, schools and rural villages.

Art is extremely important developmentally for children. The Colored Pencil Project believes that art is the perfect way for chlldren to communicate their experiences, fears, and most importantly, their dreams. By bringing the dreams belonging to these children back to the United States, in the form of pictures, The Colored Pencil Project hopes to foster global understanding and goodwill.

Volunteer opportunity: Get your friends and family involved in a community service project for The Colored Pencil Project’s global endeavor by hosting an art supply drive at your school or in your neighborhood, collecting 12-packs of colored pencils. Kits for mitzvah projects on how to get started are available. Email Hannah Richards for details.
