Art Resource Collaborative for Kids (ARCK)’s mission is to empower students through high-quality arts education that fosters culture and community while supporting schools’ learning objectives.
Founded in 2012, ARCK has been using art as a vehicle for social impact to engage underserved students to innovate. We partner with Boston Public Schools teaching K-8 students to deliver arts integration programming for 36 weeks. Our trained teaching artists and classroom teachers offer weekly, in-school arts integration lessons free of charge through ARCK’s core three modules: Leadership, Civic Engagement, and Social Justice. Our lessons promote social-emotional skills such as emotion management, collaboration, empathy, exploring sustainable projects specifically using waste management products for upcycling solutions.
