Call To Action

We are a new organization and hope to create many projects to reach special needs children and adults as well as inspiring creativity for anyone interested in enhancing their artistic side. The amount of services we can provide and people we reach depends on your help. John's Island is a rural community with rich cultural diversity but few resources for artists and special needs families. Our services are open to anyone who can benefit from the John's Island community, throughout the LowCountry, South Carolina, the US and internationally. Please support our organization by being involved and funding our projects.


We want to hear from you. Artformation can provide services at the John's Island location or we can come to individuals and community organizations to create an art therapy project and/or provide education and services. Visit our Contact page and let us know what your interests are.
