Project Color Corps™ believes in the power of color as a change agent to infuse a sense of well-being and energy into urban neighborhoods nationwide! In 2011, Laura Guido-Clark fulfilled her dream and founded Project Color Corps, a volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to creating change by painting inner city neighborhoods with color and pattern that impart positive messages of optimism and hope. Color is a powerful language that speaks volumes and can empower us emotionally. We believe that color is transformational and that fresh paint has the power to improve the quality of life for children and residents of at risk, disadvantaged and under served communities.
Project Color Corps creates the design vision for each project – then employs professional contractors and galvanizes volunteer artists to roll up their sleeves and paint. We engage the community in developing a design scheme that reflects their unique essence – creating a greater sense of ownership, empowerment and pride. Through this process, we also aspire to teach community members and their children the fundamentals of color, the connection between color and emotion, and how color may be used in powerful ways.
In addition to painting neighborhoods, Project Color Corps creates smaller, and often temporary, public art projects called Random Acts of Color. A Random Act of Color is our remedy for monotony and lack. It is optical optimism. A community act of color stirring emotions of wonder, reflection and joy.
Project Color Corps relies upon corporate and private individual contributions, as well as foundational grants, to complete its projects. Please support Project Color Corps and donate now!
