DrawTogether Classrooms is a non-profit program that uses art to grow hearts in learning spaces around the world. We empower learners to develop curiosity, creativity, confidence, and connection through high-quality drawing-based experiences. And we empower educators to support those goals by offering a variety of resources and activities.
DrawTogether Classrooms 2022 Pilot Program supported 100 classrooms in over 30 states around the U.S., reaching thousands of kids. This includes elementary, middle, and high schools, afterschool programs, non-profit organizations, pediatric hospitals, and more! The majority of the schools and programs in our pilot supported low-income and historically marginalized communities. Learn more in our 2022 Impact Report.

“I love the social-emotional aspect of these drawing exercises. The students desperately need it right now. I love having the Draw Together resources to help support my students emotional needs in addition to providing art.”
“Using DrawTogether, I see concrete improvements in how my students connect with each other. I noticed a child giving a child a compliment on their work. I noticed another child telling their partner not to give up and to keep trying. One child was frustrated because their work did not look like the video and the other child told them to keep trying.”
“I have found that Draw Together has helped my students take a mental break and reflect. It’s also been a way for them to just be silly and exist without judgment in our classroom space – which helps to build their excitement about school.”
