HEART could not do what we do without our loving, dedicated, & creative volunteer HEARTISTS. HEART Volunteers are artists, actors, performers, and nature lovers too. even if they do not know it yet, they are artists. we all are. heart inspires all participants including volunteers, staff, and community members to get out of their comfort zones and create with the heartists. AT HEART, ARTists of all abilities create together in an inclusive environment. this is where the magic happens.
