RHAP's Mission

Driven by a belief that making art is a basic human right, volunteer tutors work with neighborhood children who have limited access to empowering art education that will nurture their creative talent as the basis for personal transformation, self-empowerment and academic achievement. We believe in the importance of a small community formed around a need where creativity is recognized as central to the development of healthy young people.

  • I am 16 years old. I came to RHAP because I love to draw. RHAP has helped me explore so many forms of art. RHAP also helps me with academics which is an area I struggle with. RHAP helped me with believing in myself and never giving up. I get inspiration and help from the students and the volunteers. Everyone is connected like family. You learn to trust the people you see.
