ART4HUMANITY was founded July 2004 by sole proprietor Susan A. Walton to ensure a greater awareness of the arts to all people.
She desires a society that is conscious of lifestyles that choose art as an aim. Her clients have opportunities to grow in their own right as creative humans to contribute to living history and to shape future generations. She matches her thinking with that of other upcoming scholars for a more conscious, conceptual and spiritual age using arts as a vehicle for learning and shaping human development.
Furthermore, Susan professes in her work empathy for humanity in this ever- changing world.
She believes by design (choice) one can change their human condition and that of others.
It is creating meaning in ones’ personal story that there is creative expression. As humanity, we can hold onto what is valuable-ART.
