Blick Art Materials 2020We are honored to be sponsored by Blick Art Materials. They have enabled us to offer a wider range of activities, utilizing the highest quality materials available and to provide each child with their own art sets so they can continue creating on their own.


Peter de Séve
It’s an honor to have renowned illustrator and character designer, Peter de Séve, on our board. It’s also an incredible thrill and hugely generous of him to auction off some of his original art work to support the Ink Well kids! Thank you so much, Peter. You are our knight in shining armor forever.


The Carnival of Love’s wonderful $10,000 gift in 2013 allowed us to both increase the frequency of our events and expand our range to reach more children than in any year previous. The positive effects of this contribution still ripples through to today.
