We believe that access to the healing power of art is essential for
building strong and connected communities, and we strive to offer a
range of cost-effective programming options to make this possible.

Our Brief History
Hive Juice Lab
WeArtOne volunteered at the Hive Juice Lab by designing and painting a mural on their storefront. The mural reflected the values of the local business, which specialized in healthy juices and smoothies. The whole community came out to help paint and enjoy live entertainment, snacks, and drinks provided by the Hive Juice Lab staff. The mural brightened up the space and the experience of the Hive Juice Lab, which was a popular destination for locals and tourists at the time. Although the Hive Juice Lab is no longer in operation, we look back on this experience with pride and gratitude for the opportunity to give back to our community.
The Golden Flower-Mural
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
We had the opportunity to collaborate with other artists in Yonkers to create a mural for the launch of Yonkers Arts Weekend. We presented the mural on News 12, and the event was a celebration of the local arts scene and a chance for artists to come together and showcase their work. We were proud to be a part of it and contribute to the success of the event.
Black Lives Matter Mural
We were excited to team up with Yonkers Arts and some awesome members of the community to create a BLM Mural in Getty Square. We all came together to create a mural that was a powerful expression of solidarity and a call for justice. It was a true collaboration, with artists of all ages and backgrounds working together to make something amazing. We were grateful for the chance to use our art to make a difference and add our voices to the conversation about racial equality and social justice.
Moves For Mental Health
We were proud to collaborate with other local organizations to provide therapeutic art experiences to kids in the community. Art has the power to heal, to bring joy, and to foster self-expression, and we believe that every child should have the opportunity to experience its benefits. Through our collaboration, we were able to reach more kids and offer a wider range of art activities and workshops. It was a rewarding and fulfilling experience for all of us, and we hope to continue collaborating with other organizations to bring the transformative power of art to more kids in the future.
