Residency Programs

Our visual arts education programs are inspired by relevant, contemporary visual arts practices with a focus on creating spaces for expression by fostering community and connection in the classroom. Artmaking provides a conduit for igniting the creativity that already resides within each young person, helps students process and express feelings, fosters community with peers, and builds self-esteem in a supportive yet challenging environment.

Free Programs for Title I Schools

All young people deserve access to creative opportunities. Each year, ArtReach provides a limited number of free visual arts programs for elementary schools that lack the financial resources to fund a visual arts program for their students. We also provide an ongoing discount on total program cost to all San Diego County schools with a Title I designation.
