Each of our programs fosters a relationship between an artist (or artists) and a small group of young people. Projects are custom-designed based on the artist, his or her interests, the group's interests, and the site. These placements last for 12 weeks and involve at least one session per week, usually after school.
For each program we partner with an organization committed to serving children in need: We offer ongoing enrichment opportunities that would otherwise not be available; and they offer the support of counselors, staff, and knowledge that comes from years of experience working with the children we serve.
From time to time we'll pull together a single, defined art event for young people. For National Night Out, for example, we helped kids cover a city street with chalk drawings; another year we videotaped their wishes for their community.
