Caring Canvases

Welcome to Caring Canvases, a ministry of Joy to the WORD, LLC

Shortly after Joy to the WORD was launched in 2012, I prayed for a way to combine my love of inspirational art with an outreach ministry in the Atlanta area and beyond. In a similar manner to the inception of my art business, I awakened in August of 2013 with “Caring Canvases”, and am grateful to share this gift from God with our community!

With your kindness and support, we are sending love, joy, and hope to many people who are suffering physically, emotionally, and/or spiritually with these inspirational messages captured on canvas. All of these incredible pieces have been created with LOVE, and are touching lives in the Atlanta area and now all over the world!

Thank you for helping to make this dream a reality and God bless you!

The mission of Caring Canvases is to spread uplifting, encouraging, and positive messages to people in need through inspirational art. We will come to your home, clubhouse, office, etc., with all of the materials needed to paint special canvases for others. Besides bringing supplies, we will set up and facilitate the party for your group. You will become the artists of your own original creations, and each inspirational piece will be signed by you and donated to the charitable organization of your group’s choice…a fun, worthwhile, and rewarding activity with family, friends, coworkers, and more!

“Painting it Forward” Painting Party – $25.00* suggested donation per person to paint one inspirational canvas (each), which will be donated to the charitable organization of your group’s choice. All canvases can either be base coated with assorted paint colors or pre-designed upon request to assist with time.

* If your group has a specific financial challenge, please let us know and we will do our best to work with you.

A portion of the proceeds from each event is set aside to work with groups that would be unable to participate otherwise and to assist with fundraising efforts for various charitable organizations.

The group minimum is 10 participants for home parties, and 20 participants for corporations and organizations. A half deposit is due at the time of booking, and the remainder is due at the event. The hosting groups are responsible for contacting the charitable organizations of their choice, and arranging delivery of the finished canvases, but we will assist however we can.

We are available to travel within the state of Georgia, and will consider events out of state as well. A travel fee and/or other expenses will be added to distances further than 30 miles.

For information on hosting a Caring Canvases party, contributing through monetary or supply donations, volunteering, or for any questions… please email Eileen at escardillo@bellsouth.net or call 770.294.0390.
