About Us

OUR MISSION

To Use Art to Make a Positive Impact in Our Community

Dreams Hatchery is constantly using art to build a safe environment where children can dream, create, and imagine a better tomorrow through the power of art. We encourage kids to convey their emotions in a positive and meaningful way. Many of the children we serve have been victims of traumatic experiences; such as verbal, physical, and sexual abuse, neglect, and/or homelessness.

We present opportunities to develop valuable skills that will have a positive impact on their future.

We also partner with schools, faith-based institutions, churches, shelters, foster homes, and other children’s organizations to implement our very unique creative and expressive arts programs.

“If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint,”

“Art is a wound turned into light.”
Georges Braque

WHY ART IS IMPORTANT?

We believe art is a tool that has the power to change people’s lives.

Through art, children develop new skills that will help restore their confidence and self-esteem, learn that there is hope and discover a bright future.

Dreams Hatchery focuses on the expressive and sensory properties of art that encourage the development of creativity in childhood.

The childhood development process, in many cases, is interrupted when there is emotional trauma. Art helps a child to gradually develop more complex skills on the simpler ones. Childhood development empowers children for effective independent survival as adults.
