Community Programs offer creative youth development artist-led workshops outside of normal school hours. Students in non-traditional school settings benefit from our curriculum adjusted for smaller class sizes, a variety of learning needs, and flexible student schedules.


Culture, Art, and Worldbuilding is a series of creative youth development after-school workshops. They center around youth voice, investigating identity, and exploring community through individual and collaborative works. Using textile, sculpture, and installation art, participants create a series of works that reflect on personal narratives and the creation of supportive community environments inspired by worldbuilding.

Community. Access. Connection. workshops are low-cost art educational opportunities for the public and paid teaching opportunities for artists. Workshops are accessible to everyone in an effort to break down the financial barriers that often deter people from accessing arts education. For those with the ability and inspiration to donate, ArtReach is a 501c3 nonprofit and will happily accept donations toward their free visual arts programs in San Diego County schools.

Community workshops at ArtReach Studio HQ. No participants will be turned away for lack of funds.
