Free Arts for Abused Children of Arizona is a nonprofit organization that brings the healing powers of the creative arts to abused and homeless children. Free Arts’ Camp Series allows these children to participate in a diverse selection of arts workshops led by professional teaching artists. While the children discover and express their inner talents, many of them also experience growth and healing through their artistic exploration.
