Art Reach

Meet our newest Cause of the Quarter:

Art for All: The ArtReach Mission

ArtReach believes that all youngsters, regardless of socioeconomic status, benefit from the opportunity to practice creative thinking and creative doing. We strive to increase access to visual arts education by taking professional artists into K-6 schools throughout San Diego County to provide hands-on, standards-based workshops. We focus on providing free workshops to students at schools that meet need criteria and have no or scant visual arts education resources. We also provide fee-based workshops to schools or organizations that have the ability to pay.

ArtReach Teaching Artists

“All of our teaching artists make a living creating art.  Our team includes plein air painters, print makers, graphic designers, photographers, and more.  Though their techniques differ, they have a passion for art and a commitment to making art experiences available for children in common.  Our artists share pieces of their own work before helping students find their own artistic voice.  Our team believes art is an exploration and that there is no one “right” way to approach a project.  We nurture originality and confidence in every student.”

ArtReach Workshops In Schools
They bring everything needed to your school for each lesson, no buses required. ArtReach workshops include:

  • Professional artists as teachers
  • Innovative projects that instruct and inspire
  • STEAM oriented lesson by request
  • One time visit, series or artist residencies
  • Emphasis on creating original work
  • Workshops for entire schools or specific grade levels

For their generous programs that provide free workshops to students at schools with scant or no visual arts education resources; as well as their robust fee-based arts workshops to schools or organizations with the ability to pay we are proud to have Art Reach as our newest Cause of the Quarter!
