“Our hallway is brighter and more colorful because of the artwork the Shared Walls Program has loaned to us! We are so thankful to IPaintMyMind for kindly, passionately, and professionally bringing contemporary art to our school.”
“The team has just been wonderful… they came and did exactly what they said they’d do. IPMM will be a partner, always.”
“Thank you for creating such a magical organization!”
As a teacher you have three main challenges all the time: lack of time, resources, and support. That must be so hard. You’ve worked in schools or community organizations for years and always have less to work with, moving you to look for unique ways to bring resources to your community.
As an art teacher, you wish you could tap into the creativity and community our city offers in an efficient and quick way, and connecting with other educators isn’t built into the schedule.
Most of all, you want your school or community to feel validated, supported, and seen. You want the same. And you deserve it. Because of our history, impact, approach, and heart, we’d love to help you get where you’re trying to go. We see you and we’re here to help. What’s more, our track record proves we can and will!
We’re here to help you be the educator you want to be.
What if your school could become even more vibrant through art? What if your youth center had real artistic inspiration? What if your library could convey creativity and safety? What if IPaintMyMind could support the work you do every day?

5. GIVING BACK AND MORE ART!
Every single year we iterate on our offerings and work with school partners to fundraise creatively to ensure we can bring our art program to kids and communities in your neck of the woods for years to come.
Shared Walls™ is a comprehensive 3-part visual art program. It’s the only program of its kind in which every school we work with receives an art gallery in their school featuring professional local art, a robust bilingual art curriculum, and ongoing artist content and video workshops!
The program is completely FREE to community spaces in Chicago in Year 1 and then available through grant or other funding in Years 2+. Whether PTO’s, fundraising campaigns, or other available budgets, we are excited to work with you year after year, delivering delight and new possibilities through art.
By inspiring children citywide by making art accessible to them, we hope to help facilitate moments of creative inspiration that move the world forward.
Of course, you can also Choose Your Own Adventure with our workshops, murals, or curbside art workshops too!
