About: SkyART provides a broad range of free visual art programming to young people through our Studio, School, and Community Programs. Our defining innovative approach, the SkyWAY, is a shift in perspective that blurs the lines of formal art education and centers on art-making as an inherently educational experience. Through the lens of art, SkyART focuses on creative youth development, constantly striving to make programs more relevant and more dynamic. You will not find its studio walls filled with identically constructed projects; you’ll find vibrant collaborative canvases, 12 feet wide, and full of color. You will not see "art students" following the directions of an "art teacher"; you’ll find an animated community of makers, working together to identify relevant pathways for each participant to follow, refining the group’s trajectory as they go to include all individual contributions to a shared collective vision
As a complement to the SkyART Studio Programs, the Family Table program reflects one of SkyART’s core values, Totality, a commitment we made to nourish the whole child. This Program includes providing our participants with home-cooked meals, teaching them how to make nutritious snacks in our Kitchen Studio, and showing them how to sow seeds and harvest organic food from our four-city lots Artist’s Garden.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
