Our Programs


We run four interconnected programs; Studios, Youth Education, Adult Education, and Exhibitions & Events. Our programs nurture creativity, foster volunteerism, and connect diverse audiences, while supporting the social, economic, and cultural health of the Bay Area.


STUDIOS


We provide discounted studios and valuable professional and creative development opportunities to emerging artists in exchange for service in the organization. Our Studios Program offers emerging artists a space to interact, develop new work, and give back to the community. As volunteers, artists gain professional experience in the area of their choice.

YOUTH EDUCATION


We recruit and train Studio Artists and other volunteers to teach free, high quality arts classes in one of our eight partner programs in schools and community centers. These artists gain valuable experience teaching within the local community, and young students are able to interact with adult mentors in the art-making process. Each year, we teach over 800 children and teens the language of art—giving them the tools to creatively express a range of ideas and experiences, and to share their stories through art.
