We are grateful to be made up of some of the most talented artists working in the professional arts today. Due to our volunteers’ wide range of backgrounds from animated films and TV series, to video games and VFX, to illustrated books and comics, to fine art, graphic design, puppetry, stop motion, and more, our talent pool allows us to offer the children the widest variety of arts activities possible.
Please see our Past Events page to see our volunteers and kids in action!
It is with a very heavy heart that we say farewell to our dear friend, Nina Frenkel. Nina volunteered regularly with us since 2009. In the summer of 2016, she lost her own hard-fought battle with cancer. Nina was the epitome of grace and giving. She focused completely on each child she drew with at our events, comforting and empathizing with them on a very personal level. We love you and will always miss you, Nina.
Our dear friend and long-time volunteer, Barbara Garrison brought so much charm and chutzpah wherever she went. The Ink Well kids and volunteers alike loved her beautiful bears and pumpkin hat, her sarcastic wit and stories of her native England. Barbara was one of the toughest yet gentlest people we’ve known and we are so grateful for her dedication as she traveled all across the city to bring warmth and support to so many children.
We were honored to have legendary comic book artist, Stan Goldberg, as an Ink Well member. His brilliant work on Archie, the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and many other characters will continue to inspire young artists for all time to come. Thank you, Stan, for sharing your light and laughter and talent with our kids and for being a dear friend to us all.
