WORKS IN PROGRESS
The "Handmade in America" project
GOAL: To INSPIRE & to Artify America
We are working to send a 53' tractor trailer across America with two huge paint-by-number murals drawn on both sides ready for children to add their hand-prints to the corresponding areas. The trailer will also be a mobile art gallery and mobile studio for artist David F. Heatwole. The gallery will feature enlarged and framed photos of our past environmental installations as well as showcase 50 works of art dedicated to benefit 50 hand selected amazing charities across the country working to serve their communities. This is part of our goal of instituting an annual National Art for Charity event. (Read more about this goal above)
ANNOUNCEMENT! WE MET OUR INITIAL GOAL OF $5000! Now onward to raise the $35,000
LOOK WHAT CAN HAPPEN
Art For Charity Month - Art Auction
For the 1st time since 2000's "Flowering of a Dream" community collaboration we are pleased to be working toward a national event to recognize fifty 501(c)(3) not-for-charity organizations around the country. These charities of choice serve the people of this great nation and in some cases also people of the world through their hard work and passion for doing the right thing.

More from our founder:
From artist David F. Heatwole: 'I am very excited to share the news that The Umbrella Offering program has reached Gulu, Uganda thanks to Finding The Way.
The Umbrella Offering program that began with approximately 160 volunteers at Turner Ashby High School in Bridgewater, Virginia who created the first Umbrella Offering project. Their project, a great big fish, was created to work as if throwing a stone in a calm pond. With that one project and the trust that those students and staff that contributed to making that project possible I have continued to share their project with others in order to encourage other schools and communities to work together to make art and to unite as many people in their community as possible, one project at a time.
My promise to the volunteers from Turner Ashby High School has been honored and now with this one panel being created internationally really excites me to continue onward."
Please join us in sending a team to Uganda to work with the people in making art as well as to help Finding The Way make a difference in this country. Read more about their mission at www.findingthewayafrica.org
