Painting a brighter future

Hearts of the World empowers young people to discover their passion and unique purpose through painting workshops. They explore their inner worlds, their hopes, their fears and their potential through creative self expression.


Take a look at last year's Workshop Tour Throughout India!



Since 2010, Hearts of the World has fostered self-expression through painting workshops in ten countries. Started at the Lower East side Girls Club, by founder, NYC-based artist Nicolina, the HOTW team has partnered with schools, social service agencies and arts organizations to create life-altering experiences. The aim of these workshops is to exercise the healing powers of creativity that transcend international borders giving young people tools to navigate the often difficult world in which they live.
