GROWTH TIMELINE

ProjectArt began in 2011 with little more than a bag of art supplies and a borrowed office space in Harlem.




Beginnings
In 2011, with little more than a bag full of art supplies and borrowed office space in Harlem, Adarsh began ProjectArt. There was one goal and one goal only: to put paintbrushes in the hands of as many children that don’t have adequate access to arts education as possible. Soon, friends became teachers, parents became volunteers and kids became students.
