Who We Are

We are a team of professional artists and educators who have come together with a strong belief: creativity is the most important skill a child can learn—and it can be taught.


We provide unique hands-on experiences that ignite the creative potential in students. In many cases, the most innovative and talented students possess a brilliance and intellect that goes undiscovered within the narrowly focused confines of the current curriculum.


The Rainforest Art Project improves overall student performance and behavior by breaking down learning barriers and developing a new level of self-confidence.

Although we work with many schools who have established art departments, our primary mission is to provide classroom teachers with all the resources which they require to feel absolutely confident in bringing art and creative enrichment to their students.

Asking teachers to spend their rare “free time” preparing art lessons and shopping for supplies is not a suitable solution. Hundreds of teachers are providing entertaining and educational art exercises for their students with ease and confidence with the help of our colorful workbooks, top-notch instructional art videos, academically aligned topics, pre-packaged supplies, and rapid professional support.


In a nutshell, we have torn down every barrier which prevents teachers from providing their students with the quality art education that they deserve.

Creative thinking and creative problem solving are essential skills in the 21st century workplace.

As we present students with a more expanded view of the learning spectrum, we increase the likelihood that they will discover their element — something they can be passionate about, and which awakens their own unique sense of wonder and purpose.

Our objective is to inspire a culture of innovative and accomplished youth by helping to build skills that empower and enrich their lives.

Through lasting improvement of their schools, homes, and communities with artworks, students develop a sense of pride and empowerment that lasts long after the program is completed.
