“In addition to the measurable growth in our children, there was a marked increase in the children’s self-esteem, peer relationships, and commitment to excellence.”

About Us

NetworkArts uses mosaics as a language of learning and as a tool to help children value themselves and their communities. First imagine in-depth educational programs that range from hard-core science exploration and the environment to arts and the humanities. Now imagine thousands of children taking what they have learned and creating pieces of art that literally transform their communities. Feel the pride as they contribute to long-lasting pieces of art that will enrich their communities for ages. Experience the warm connection and strong rapport as children, teachers, and volunteers of all ages work together. This is the NetworkArts magic.

Founded in 1993, NetworkArts is an international non-profit organization that provides a variety of educational programs targeted toward potentially at-risk children, all of which culminate in the creation of a mosaic — a physical testament to what the students have learned. NetworkArts teams with partners, corporate and foundation supporters, and volunteers to inspire children to explore the world inside themselves and around them — and then pass that knowledge on to their communities through their artwork.

By providing students with the opportunity to express themselves, NetworkArts brings to life a world that these children might never experience. A world that values great minds of the past, emphasizes social responsibility to the environment, places a premium on teamwork, and instills confidence to look toward a future of infinite learning potential.

NetworkArts mosaics can be found at the Philadelphia International Airport, Academy of Natural Sciences, Franklin Institute, Manayunk Canal, Philadelphia Free Library (Kensington), Philadelphia Zoo, Temple University (Ambler), Campbell Riversharks Stadium, Camden Children’s Garden, and Camden City Council chambers in addition to numerous schools, recreation centers, parks, nursing homes, and community sites. NetworkArts has also worked with the Alvin Ailey Dance Company and the Philadelphia Eagles. Read endorsements about NetworkArts (in Adobe Acrobat format).
