ABOUT THE FRESH ARTISTS CORPORATE ART PROGRAM
Great Art Doing Good!
Brilliant artwork for community-minded corporations.
Transform your workplace and the community by choosing Fresh Artists brilliant artwork for your corporate interior.
When corporations make a donation to help us deliver art supplies and innovative art programs to severely underfunded public schools across the country, they are thanked with a custom installation of beautiful artwork donated by Fresh Artist students.
Our large-scale digital reproductions of children's art will transform your workplace into a hospitable, vibrant and meaningful environment. Our online, collection of more than 2,300 diverse works and professional installation options make it easy for your company to choose art that fits their unique style, space and brand.
All of the artwork in our curated collection has been generously donated by more than 1,800 "Fresh Artist Philanthropists". A Fresh Artist Philanthropist is a talented K-12 public school student that has been invited to donate their artwork with the purpose to give other children access to quality art education. A child selected to become a Fresh Artist Philanthropist radiates confidence knowing their artwork "is going to work to change the world".
Fresh Artists has more than 14 years of experience working with corporations to energize their office space and make an impact on the community. Our process is easy, affordable and most importantly meaningful.
We are a turnkey Corporate Art Program that handles everything from artwork selection and placement, to professional installation. First, we do an initial walk-through and site-survey of your space to hear your ideas about where you would like art and if you have any preferences in style. Then we send you a complete proposal with a donation request. Your donation is tax-deductible and directly supports the delivery of art supplies and innovative art programs to unfunded public schools nationwide. To begin the process please contact us.
Our professional corporate art team handles everything from site survey, exhibit design, curation, installation and art refreshes to fulfill your company’s unique artwork needs.
We offer an optional team-building exercise that invites your entire staff to have the fun of participating in the first round selections of art choices on a private, custom online “voting site."
We will re-freshen your artwork and re-gift and install the original artwork in local nonprofits such as emergency homeless shelters.
All donations to Fresh Artists, a 501(c)(3), are tax deductible to the fullest extent the law allows. (PA Bureau of Charitable Organizations #37052)
Utilizing the latest in large-format digital printing, Fresh Artists offers a wide selection of installation types. Listed below are just a few of our standard offerings but the sky is the limit and our on-staff environmental graphic designer can work with your team to create something that is not only spectacular, but one-of-a-kind.
Our Elegant Signature Installation
Our signature installation is an ultra, high-resolution photographic reproduction using standoffs that float the image elegantly off the wall. A museum-quality acrylic wall label with the young artist/philanthropist's information is placed on the wall along side each artwork.
Second Surface Acrylic
Second Surface Acrylic artwork is printed on the reverse of quarter-inch clear acrylic. All panels are affixed to the wall with 1” spun aluminum standoffs, giving an elegant appearance of floating. A museum-quality acrylic wall label with student information accompanies each artwork.
Wallpaper and Wraps

Fresh Artists artwork can also adorn the walls of your exterior spaces to bring the color from inside to the outdoors! Utilizing exterior grade vinyl and over-laminate wrapped over quarter-inch Aluminum composite material and hung with stainless steel stand-offs, you can be sure your exterior prints will last.
HOW YOUR DONATION MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Because of corporations like yours, Fresh Artists’ impact is visible in art classrooms across the country.
Art Teachers in more than half of the schools we serve have ZERO budget for art supplies. Period. Many art teachers must survive by being exhaustingly and relentlessly resourceful, relying on the kindness of community organizations or, more typically, resorting to using their own grocery money to buy their students consumable materials.
Because of generous corporations like yours, hundreds of thousands of children have access to such materials as juicy new colored markers, air-dry clay, luminous watercolors sets, brilliantly-hued tempera paints, fat sketch pads, fluffy and fine-lined paintbrushes, vivid Cray-Pas pastels and reams of bright construction paper. The kids can’t fail to be successful.
In addition, your company will help us deliver innovative art programs to thousands of schools nationwide that nurture artistic excellence, expose students to careers in the creative economy and build life skills needed for success.
In the words of one teacher:
"Fresh Artists is a visionary nonprofit initiative. Businesses get stunning art, student artists achieve "published artist" status and know they are helping other children, and art teachers receive art supplies and art programs like manna from Heaven. Fresh Artists is our entrepreneurial art angel!"
Being chosen to be a Fresh Artist is the most important thing that's happened to me
Before I was just an ordinary kid. Other kids got chosen for grades, basketball, being popular. Not me. They was Rocky Road and I was plain vanilla. But you chose my art and told me I was powerful. You said I could make a difference. None of them guys is powerful. Just flashy. I got work to do making more art. Thank you for choosing me.” (Grade 10)
Giving Hope for the Future & Teaching Philanthropy
“Since you installed the new art in our new building, we have heard and seen only positive reactions to the art and the program behind it. The feedback from our employees about the young artists' work has been very positive, not only because they enjoy the images but also because it shows how SAP America contributes to local schools and communities. Fresh Artists is not only giving the students hope for a bright future, but also teaching them to be philanthropic and this is inspiring to us all.

Exhibiting Children’s Artwork in Highly Visible and Unexpected Places
Children commonly believe the refrigerator door is the last stop for their artwork. We give recognition to K-12 children by showcasing their artwork in highly visible, unexpected places. Receiving public validation for their gifts prompts our young artists to see themselves as talented, capable and generous, with the ability to effect positive change.
“I still can’t believe what I saw downtown. My art, really, really big. Filled that wall in that office. It seemed to jump off the wall. Everybody was looking at it. Looking at me. They told me I have real talent, and that I should keep going, make some more. Study. I could go places with this. Something powerful.” (Grade 11)
Fresh Artists Artwork Energizes and Inspires Employees
“Every morning I get off the elevator, and instead of starting to mull over all the issues I need to wrestle with that day, I'm greeted by these colorful reminders of what life is all about...our future and our children. The Fresh Artists artwork makes our workplace and our community healthier, and both are business priorities for us.” Corporate Art Partner, Bill George, CEO, Health Partners Plans
Why I became a Fresh Artists Philanthropist
We create real opportunities for children to be major participants in philanthropy, giving directly to impact other kids. We call what we do “lateral philanthropy,” since the children we serve are themselves the catalytic donors. It is a circle of philanthropy in which children’s art fulfills a real business need while raising funds for future art making.
“I never knew I had anything to give. All I ever hear is what I don’t do right. Fresh Artists told me I made really good art, and that it could do a lot for other kids. That makes me feel fine. Makes me proud to do right and give to others. I like the way this feels.”
Fresh Artist, Jaydan, Grade 10
Giving Art Teachers the Fuel to Ignite Change
“So… you gotta have stuff to make art. Then you use up the stuff, and you need more stuff. And then you run out of yellow. We need a lot of stuff to make Good Art…especially yellow.” Fresh Artist, Rochelle, Grade 2
ROCHELLE IS RIGHT. Making art demands consumable products. Half the Art teachers applying for our free art materials spend more than $750 of their own precious grocery money buying art supplies for their students.
Fresh Artists Corporate Art Partners solve this problem by helping us directly deliver quality art supplies and innovative art programs to schools with empty shelves.
