With every gift to Paint a Miracle, you are making an investment in the creative life of our community and in the lives of individuals who might not otherwise have access to the arts. Most of our artists cannot maintain gainful employment due to the nature or severity of their disability. Paint a Miracle provides them with meaningful work, a sense of community and scholarships for those artists that cannot afford to pay for classes.

On February 12, 2017, longtime Paint a Miracle artist and board member, Cynthia Buchanan, passed away suddenly at the age of 64. Cynthia was, and always will be, an inspiration to our artists and anyone working to overcome challenges. She taught us how to live with grace and optimism in the face of suffering, and we are forever grateful for her contributions to Paint a Miracle, disability awareness, art,  and to the world.

She is greatly missed by our artists, staff, and volunteers, but she will never be forgotten.
