Just imagine what we can do

Art Impact Project is a non-profit organization founded by Vickie Marasco of Lake Forest, IL. The beauty of Art Impact Project is how easily our art programming can be integrated into our partners’ programs. This flexibility allows us to work with many kinds of groups and organizations in many different ways. Some of our partnerships — past, present and future — include:

  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs)
  • Sober living homes
  • Substance abuse recovery sites
  • Behavioral & mental health facilities
  • High school wellness programs
  • After-school programs for at-risk adolescents

Art Impact Project works closely with a multitude of agencies in which our art programming is integrated into and enhances our partners’ existing programs. Our flexibility and effective programming allow for us to reach a wide range of participants, allowing for greater opportunity of expression and emotional wellness.
