ArtWorks provides children and young adults suffering from chronic and life-threatening illnesses access to creative and performing arts programs that encourage the use of the creative process as a vehicle for healing, communication, self-expression and personal development. ArtWorks seeks to empower, validate, and honor these children by offering them the hands-on experience and materials with which to create, as well as the opportunity to publicly share their artistic accomplishments.A part of the Generosity Series, Generosity Brooklyn is a multi-charity 5K.
