Children are the most innocent and most deserving of protection. Most importantly, they are often the muse for art and, of course, they will become the next painters, singers, dancers and inspirations. Children are creators and creation in one.
In the countries that seek to destroy the arts, children are vulnerable.
Artists 4 Israel are for the children. From our Emergency Arts Kit to painting t-shirts with the kids who survived Hurricane Sandy and to painting schools, community centers and playgrounds throughout Israel, we are inspiring the next generation.

A select group of A4I’s internationally recognized graffiti artists travel to campus to paint a giant pro-Israel mural while instructing students in how to create their own spray painted message of support.
At least two of these artists have been to Israel and engage the students in direct dialogue, transcending politics, to talk about their own personal experiences and how they, individually, came to love and support Israel.
We can also add performers, DJs, hip-hop artists and speakers.
So far, we have visited over 30 campuses, partnering with the JNF, Hillel, Stand With Us, The Israeli Consulate and many others. Our events routinely attract over 300 students who leave with an incredibly positive sense of the beauty of Israel. Our final event of last semester at Rutgers brought 400 participating students who lined up waiting to paint and watching the work and speaking with our artists.
