The mission of the Westchester Square Art Center is to engage the large creative population of youth residing in the Bronx, in negotiating, competing and achieving success in the field of visual arts. The Westchester Square Art Center provides a state of the art, multi-discipline visual arts academy experience to those artists residing in the community of the Bronx. W2AC offers a total art experience encountered only by those in the profession. The target customer is the serious secondary, high school and college student with artistic potential seeking an introduction into the field of art. An established artist may require a daily studio space to complete a project or a senior artist may require professional training to improve their skills. The Westchester Square Art Center will provide unique and personal attention to each of these groups.
We are a Bronx based not-for-profit organization, dedicated to exposing our students to the world of professional art and increasing their artistic skills. Specializing in traditional art training for both adults and children, our goal is to elevate artists to new levels of learning and creativity. We not only guide our students through the creation of art (drawing, painting, design), but offer an extensive background in historic and contemporary art. As we are community-based, exposing our students to the cultural richness of the Bronx and the visual opportunities it may inspire, is at the heart of W2AC.
