The Artist Challenge is a fun, fast-paced live painting event that provides critical support for Paint Love's art programs for youth facing poverty and trauma.The Artist Challenge is a fun, fast-paced live painting event that raises vital funding to support Paint Love’s arts programming with local Title 1 schools and youth-serving nonprofits.

Six local artists will race the clock to complete a painting in just three hours. But there’s a catch— each artist starts with just a blank canvas and will need the help of attendees to earn the supplies they need to finish their masterpiece.

Camp PEACE - June 14

Current Needs

  • Lead artist!

  • Volunteers to assist!

The Project

During camp they serve approximately 50 children between the ages of 5-14. All of the children have at one point lived at the Women’s Resource Center safe house as a result of domestic violence.

They would like Paint Love to provide their children opportunities to explore their creative side and give them opportunities to experience success. One of their main goals is to help children build resilience after the trauma they have experienced.  They would like us to provide their students a creative outlet and positive relationships.

Check out our past summers with Camp PEACE! 

The Organization 

Camp PEACE  is the summer program by the Women's Resource Center to End Domestic Violence for kids whose lives have been affected by domestic violence. All of the children have at one point lived at the Women’s Resource Center safe house as a result of domestic violence. The Women's Resource Center's mission is to create a society in which domestic violence no longer exists. They strive to meet the immediate and long-term needs of the diverse community of battered women and their children with programs that promote safety, compassion, connection, advocacy, and prevention.

The mission of Camp PEACE is to bring children exposed to domestic violence together for a month of activities that facilitate Peace Education, Action, Compassion and Empathy. Based on principles of Peace Education and Cognitively-Based Compassion Training, Camp PEACE will help children learn alternatives to violence while promoting tolerance, impartiality, affection, self-compassion and compassion for others. 

Volunteer Requirements 

  • Volunteers must be 16 years or older, and have a  background check on file with Paint Love

  • They would like the volunteers to have a basic understanding of how trauma affects children and how it may affect how the children interact with the volunteers and artists.

  • Due to the confidential nature of the children Camp PEACE works with, they do not allow photos unless the parents give permission which would be for Paint Love use only and ask the volunteers not to take pictures or post things on social media.
