Compton Art Festival


Together1Heart is joining Roosevelt Elementary School to provide the students and their families a day of art and giving back, all while celebrating the holidays!

Roosevelt Elementary School in Compton, CA has 945 students with more than half of those students (57%) are learning English as a second language and 100% of those students receive FREE or reduced-priced lunches. With a small budget, they also have very limited opportunities for students to engage in art or public service.

Together1Heart will organize a day of festivities, where hundreds of students will be able to create art and give back. The benefits will be twofold. Roosevelt students, along with their family and community, will spend a day receiving art lessons while simultaneously be mentored in public service by helping serve other children in need.

There will be an arts and crafts station, a painting on canvas station, and a toy wrapping station. Each station is based on the spirit of “Receive One, Give One,” where the students will have the opportunity to create a piece of art or wrap a toy. We will then send the art pieces and toys to T1H sponsored children living in Cambodia.

To make this day extra special for the students and their families, there will also be live entertainment, music, guest speakers, and food!

In order to ensure the day runs smoothly, we need at least 100 volunteers that will assist in setting up art stations, work with students hands-on creating art, gift wrapping, serving food, and clean up. We appreciate your support and can’t wait to celebrate the holiday season with the students!
