about Free Arts Minnesota:
Free Arts Minnesota is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the healing powers of artistic expression into the lives of abused, neglected, and at-risk children and their families.
In 1997, Free Arts for Abused Children of Minnesota (Free Arts) began serving children in residential treatment centers, battered women’s shelters, and therapeutic preschools based on the theory that for abused children, art and positive adult relationships are not a luxury but a necessity.
Free Arts programs serve to interrupt the cycle of violence. Through painting, drawing, music, writing, drama, and other creative avenues, Free Arts serves as a catalyst in helping children communicate and express themselves in new ways.
