Art Is Education: The ArtReach Mission
ArtReach believes that all children, regardless of zip code or socioeconomic status, benefit from the opportunity to practice creative thinking and creative doing. We exist to increase access to visual arts education by connecting students at K-12 schools throughout San Diego County with practicing artists. We focus on providing free programs to students at schools that meet need criteria and have no or scant visual arts education resources.
ArtReach provides a safe place for students to play, try, communicate, experiment, express, learn, accomplish, exhibit, and celebrate. Here's how you can help:
Time: Volunteer in our admin office, at creative community events, or pick up supplies to prep at your home.
Skills: Bring your skills and dedication and join our Board of Directors, join the volunteer team as a Volunteer Coordinator or photographer, or share your other applicable skills with our organization.
Voice: Share your love of ArtReach and your commitment to the cause with your friends, neighbors, business partners, and everyone you encounter!
Dollars: Donate to our mission at artreachsandiego.org/donate, through your company's match program, or via Venmo and PayPal Giving Fund
Goods: Donate art supplies, stamps, paper, baby wipes and more. View our Amazon ArtReach Wish List and send art supplies directly to our office!
Financial support is provided in part by the City of San Diego.
