The Rag Collection inspires youth to discover their voice and express it in the community by offering free art workshops, safe space, and trained art mentors to connect art to the heart through the power of story. The mission is to use art to help teens use their voice when oftentimes, they cannot otherwise express themselves.
Founder, Noel D'Avy and her team of artists hold workshops all over the Phoenix area for kids of all ages to express their feelings through art. The goal of these workshops are to empower the kids to take control of the tools they are given and keep the journey of expression going. These workshops also provide a safe space for the painters to not feel judgment as they create their art and share their stories.
