Our Mission

ArtReach empowers and connects people through the practice of visual arts.

ArtReach achieves this mission by providing mobile and studio access to under-served Chicagoans of all ages. Through mobile community programs, in-school residencies, afterschool programs and field trips, ArtReach extends access to high quality arts tools, professionals, and spaces throughout the city. In our firehouse community art studio, we provide a safe space for diverse individuals to develop art skills as well as studio management or teaching experience. 

Our Vision

All Chicagoans, regardless of background or identity, have access to diverse, high quality art professionals, tools, and spaces in order to build confident, creative, empowered communities.
