ArtReach is mobile. We bring our professional teaching artists to your park, residential center, hospital, or social service agency to provide custom art programming for your community. Depending on the number of sessions, Community Adult/Elder Studios cover basic skills in the selected medium, and may also introduce elements and principles of art, historical context and examples, as well as awareness of the therapeutic capacity of art-making, collaboration, and critique. All participants should leave with new skills and a sense of accomplishment.
Weekly or monthly repeat sessions are most popular for Community Adult/Elder Studios, but we can offer single or repeat sessions. Media choices include ceramics, painting and drawing, mosaic, metals, recycled mixed media, and more. Community Adult/Elder Studios can be geared toward a final installation, or can include take-home, collaborative, or experimental projects, depending on the number of sessions.
At ArtReach we pride ourselves in tailoring our programming to the needs, themes, and dreams of each site we serve. We are happy to consider tie-ins and integration to any issues, topics, or curricula you work with at your site. Please contact us if you have any questions.
