What We Do


Public School Events


Painting Hope is doing just that in public and private schools and universities. Through a live art performance and speaking, Eric Samuel Timm delivers relevant messages to students that captures their attention in a way that they embrace far after the assembly is over.

Eric has a sought after ability to tailor his message to address the community’s or school’s specific challenges. Messages are focused on character development, including: bullying, integrity, respect, transparency, healthy choices, responsibility, citizenship, trustworthiness, and adversity.

Thank you for taking time to consider the possibility of allowing me to come and speak and paint for your community’s greatest asset—your students.

Painting Hope has a passion for making a positive, lasting impression in the lives of young people across the country—and ultimately, the world.

It would be an honor to partner with you. I often share with students, “It is not a measure of how things begin, but how we choose to finish them.” Today, we have a chance to help students finish strong, no matter what has led them to this point. Their past does not determine their future; there is still time to make a difference!

Together we can do it. On Your Team,


Eric Samuel Timm
