Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
— Thomas Merton
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
— Pablo Picasso

SPOILER ALERT: This video will show you the 1000 CREATIVES artwork for 2019 in its entirety. Do NOT watch if you enjoy the surprise and thrill of a reveal.

How it works


Give the gift of art opportunities to youth in poverty.

Supporters of $25/month or more will join the ranks of 1000 CREATIVES and receive our monthly art subscription!


Using twelve (12) 7”x5” canvas panels, Steve Prince, an international artist and renowned printmaker, has created a 21”x20” black & white image, titled “The Healing.”

Twelve (12) Lórien different students received one of these panels with instructions to “fill in the white space with your own artistic creativity using the theme of Healing.”

Every month, 1000 CREATIVES subscribers will receive a 7”x5” print of one of these completed panels.

Like a 12-piece puzzle, each print is only 1/12th of the whole. With patience, the complete image of “The Healing” will materialize over the course of an entire year.


We believe everyone benefits from the creative process of making art! So, along with every print, you receive a “blank” copy of Steve Prince’s original black & white panel (like a page out of a coloring book).

Artists of all ages & skill levels are encouraged to also “fill in the white space with your own artistic creativity using the theme of Healing.” In the process, you’ll create your own version of “The Healing” over the course of the year.

Here’s an example of what you would receive every month:

All 1000 CREATIVES subscribers will be working off the same source material, but our final pieces will look wildly different. Share your completed art on your Instagram, tag @LorienAcademy, and we’ll re-post!
