What's Next: SPOTLIGHT SATURDAY april 28TH, noon-6PM
On the corner of our calendar each month sits a very special day for the ArtReach Team. It's our monthly Spotlight Saturday Event! There are many fun things to do including Live Art Demonstrations, Free Workshops and the Make and Take Project Menu in the Creative Cafe´. This month brings the addition of the unveiling of the Reading Rocks Project, ten rocking chairs hand painted by ten different artists inspired by children's literature. The chairs will be on display for bids from April 29th-May 4th with the funds generated by the sale of the chairs benefitting Community Action's Head Start early childhood literacy program. Please plan on joining us as we stir up some fun for you to participate in and give your creative side a whirl.
Give: Through ArtReach Projects, we aspire to function as an outreach to serve the creative needs of all peoples in all places. An intentional giving component is woven into all we offer, this varies from project to project but the main focus is leaving a positive impact in the culture while functioning as an outreach into the community. Become a part of a bigger picture to impact our world through giving.
Grow: You will find year-round programming for all ages with the goal of offering classes and workshops that ignite the imagination and inform the creative learner. Our goal is to help individuals use the creative arts to find and establish their own voice while simultaneously being a part of and giving back to the community.
Gather: The ArtReach Project places a high value on community. We are intentional to provide collaborative art projects, interactive creative spaces and free events just so you can gather in our space too. People can get more involved by volunteering, starting up a project of their own, helping others with existing projects, or even following along on social media in order to get to know us better and to help spread the word.
