ArtHeart’s Children’s and Youths’
ArtHeart provides over 200 scheduled Children’s and Youth’s Art workshops with over 264 participants attending the program throughout the year. This program runs after-school, from 3:30-5:00 pm, and throughout the summer, year-round, for participants ages 5 -16. Each workshop has an attendance of 20-30 participants.
Children’s and Youth’s Arts is a non-judgemental program in which arts education is combined with mentorship and support that fosters a sense of achievement and builds self-confidence. Participants are motivated to explore their innate creativity and express themselves artistically.
ArtHeart offers a vast array of visual arts opportunities including painting, drawing, print-making, ceramics, sculpture, fabric arts, photography, media arts and much more. Program curriculum is planned and includes, for inspiration, exposure to the work of emerging and well-known artists. This program includes in-house dances and celebrations for holidays such as Halloween, Valentines, Christmas, Chinese New Year etc.
Through partnerships with other organizations, ArtHeart’s children and youth take part in different artistic disciplines such as music, theatre, and dance. Homework support is provided, as needed.
ArtHeart runs a summertime visual arts day camp for children and youth involving studio time, snacks and refreshments and cultural and recreational field trips.
