Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Art Education

Workshops and classes offered to local residents of all ages to promote an appreciation and knowledge of various art forms. These workshops and classes are varied in that we offer low cost or free to serve everyone. We also have workshops and classes at the professional level to give local residents an option to increase their skill and knowledge at a higher level. These classes also fill a gap giving the artist wishing to make art their profession a stepping stone to that goal.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Artists and performers

This program is designed for artists, songwriters, writers, crafters, and other creative makers interested in starting or growing their business or brand.
Our organization provides mentorship and environments for these small businesses and brands to practice their skills, by doing things such as hanging their art in a gallery, playing their original songs before an audience, reading their stories to the community, or setting up an event "store" for their business. They participate along-side seasoned veterans of creative industries that guide them along the way.

Population(s) Served
Working poor
Low-income people
