What is Hope Stone?

Founded in 1997, Hope Stone celebrates over 20 years of artistic excellence and recognition in Houston, Texas. With a vision of “Art for All,” our programs serve a diverse population where the arts foster communities of creative, compassionate and problem-solving citizens. For two decades, Hope Stone has committed itself to improving the quality of life for Houstonians through art.
The Hope Project teaching artists–dedicated individuals who are passionate about sharing their artistic gifts–are the core of the program. Each teaching artist works closely with their students, combining art instruction and art making, while integrating life skills. The goal of The Hope Project is not to create professional artists, but rather to create creative citizens who learn teamwork, compassion, communication, respect for diversity, and problem-solving abilities that are essential to the success of growing communities and businesses.
