Past ArtReach Projects

ArtReach in-a-box

While our weekly ArtReach Classes are taking a hiatus, creativity cannot be stopped! As you know, the arts are crucial to learning! Students with access to arts education: score higher SATs, obtain higher GPAs, and experience lower drop out rates. Art also improves critical thinking and math skills. Now we can bring our art program to you. ArtReach (in a box) will be available beginning in November. Each box will have the equivalent of 3-4 complete projects or lessons, (similar to in-class learning) and full instructions. The boxes are age and gender neutral and suggested age range is 6 years (with help) and up! The first ArtReach (in-a-box) will be available mid-November.

What’s even better? The cost for ArtReach (in a box) is less expensive than in-class. Each box runs $25 per month. Shipping is available for an added fee. Limited, need-based scholarships are available, please inquire. Please use the button to download the sign up form. You can pay by check or credit card using the pay button.
