The Gallery and the integrated art-making tool Splash! offers an innovative and inspirational environment where you create art online, post your work, and weave a thread of shared art with your community and your family.

Think of the ArtThread Gallery as:

an art to art conversation
an online graffiti wall
social networking with paintbrushes
a place to connect through creative expression

A no-fail environment that nurtures creative expression,
supports training and curriculum,
and provides a platform to share creative victories.

A place that uses the universal and safe language of art
to bridge the gap across language and culture
and provides continuous support, connection, and expression
for the entire community.

CONNECT with anyone, from down the hall, around the corner, to anywhere in the world.

CREATE a moment for your expression. It’s easy! Grab a pencil, a paint brush, take a photo, or use the ArtThread Online Art Tools.

THRIVE as a member of the ArtThread community. Your partnership with the ArtThread Foundation makes this a reality. Creative expression empowers everyone to live life to the fullest, and offers strength, comfort, and hope – the power to thrive!
