It’s a long-debated topic, and one that is especially divided when it comes to children; does music really help with productivity? Half the argument says yes, the other half says it’s just an excuse to listen to music instead of getting work done. There is truth to both sides, but it’s actually a bit deeper than it seems.Read More

Kids & Art Foundation is deeply saddened by the loss of 3-year-old Isabella, a vibrant and creative spirit. We are extremely grateful to her family and community for creating a legacy gift to K&A in celebration of her life and her love for art. The "Izzy Effect" will continue to spread as more families will be able to engage in the healing power of art through K&A workshops.
Here are some thoughts from her family about Isabella and the impact she had on others:
Isabella Lila Hagenlocher, born on November 18, 2015 and left us on December 9, 2018. We think about all the coulda, woulda, shoulda, but Isabella never had that thought. Isabella gave it all to you all the time. You knew her thoughts and her not so subtle whispers. Isabella made you happy. Isabella was so vibrant, she brought life to life. In her short time with us, she left a big footprint on this entire family! We already notice Riley's spirit, but now you can't help but notice the extraordinary resemblance to her 7-month old sister. Isabella's spirit lives with Riley. We are going to begin calling this the Izzy Effect because it is not just her sister, but everyone who knew Izzy that will hug a little tighter and love a little more. Isabella's parents, Jillian and Patrick, supported her love for art, her creative spirit and her wild imagination with art kits, trips to the art shop and endless games.
To start off our 2019 season, we have an incredible workshop planned with award winning photographer, Oliver Klink. For this workshop, Oliver Klink will first lead the group in a tour and discussion of his current exhibit. Then, participants will have the opportunity to try out the roles of model, creative director and photographer as they capture images of their own, with Oliver's guidance.Read More
