“ArtReach does exactly as its name implies: it reaches out to students and affords them the opportunity to experience art. ArtReach allows students to express their creativity, to appreciate art, and to 'shine' in a new and different way. Thank you ArtReach!“

What is ArtReach?
ArtReach is a not-for-profit, 501 (c) 3 organization that takes working artists into K - 6 schools throughout San Diego County to provide hands-on visual art education workshops. We believe art opens the door to limitless possibilities and teaches young people to think critically and originally. And, that every child should have the opportunity to make art despite budget cuts and regardless of socioeconomic status. The team that brings ArtWalk events to San Diego every year created ArtReach in 2007. Since then, we have worked with thousands of students and families.

ArtReach Video: Arts & Innovation

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

- Albert Einstein            

In this video San Diego innovators and members of the ArtReach team share their thoughts on the value of arts education and how it impacts our “coming attractions.”
