NYC Draws

April 16, 2020 · 2 min read

Air has partnered with The New York Community Trust to raise awareness for the NYC COVID-19 Response and Impact Fund.

The Fund supports NYC-based nonprofits that are trying to meet the new and urgent needs that have hit the city, with priority to nonprofits addressing essential healthcare and food insecurity, as well as arts and culture, because New York is the cultural capital of the nation.

To help spread the word, artists from around the world submitted virtual drawing lessons and donated digital coloring pages for NYCdraws. Feel free to print out pages and color them in, or upload your very own illustrations for others to enjoy! Coloring pages are free to download, but you can support us by sharing on social with the hashtag #NYCdraws. As the campaign grows and houses more and more creations, it will slowly become one, big love note to the city.

Our hearts are with those affected by COVID-19. We may be in quarantine today, but New Yorkers will forever be connected by our creativity and the city that we love.

Arts and culture animates New York City, shapes its character, sparks its economic engine, and draws tourists. Our NYC Covid-19 Response & Impact Fund will help arts groups survive the difficult weeks ahead and reimagine how they connect with audiences.
