ArtReach is mobile. We bring our professional teaching artists to your park, community center, hospital, or social service agency to provide custom art programming for your community. Depending on the number of sessions, community youth studios cover basic skills in the selected medium, and may also introduce elements and principles of art, historical context and examples, as well as affective art-making skills of sharing, collaboration, and critique. All youth should leave with new skills and a new creative approach to building and problem solving.
We offer single or repeat sessions that delve into a variety of media, including ceramics, painting and drawing, mosaic, metals, recycled mixed media, and more. Community youth studios can be geared toward a final installation, or can include take-home, collaborative, or experimental projects, depending on the age of participants and 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.
