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.
For each of our community programs we partner with an organization committed to serving children in challenging circumstances: 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.
