Artportunity Knocks mission is to empower youth through positive arts self-expression, education, community service and bridging cultures through the arts. The organization was established in the Metro Atlanta area in 2007 with a focus on providing music and arts education, intervention and appreciation to youth from ages 6 to 18.
The organization provides positivity to youth through arts education, mentorship, artistic job training for teens, and service to the community through performing arts. We provide a nurturing artistic environment that fosters learning and creativity during the school year and summer months. Our primary demographic target ages 6-18, with an emphasis on the "tween" age groups (9-13). Our programs currently support students located within the Metropolitan region of Atlanta, Georgia with a reach that expands to over 10,000 students.
Among the specific activities provided at our site are: Homework Assistance/Tutoring Computer Lab (Software workshops) Nutritious Snacks Music Instructional Classes: Piano, Drums, Guitar, Voice Performing & Technical Arts Classes: Dance (Hip Hop/Contemporary), Acting, Rap, Music Production and Music Engineering Mentorship
We also host positive concerts every year in hopes of giving not only Artportunity Knocks students, but other up and coming artists an opportunity to perform live in front of thousands.
