Programs: Free Workshops -- ArtReach provides free, multi-session art workshops to K- 6 throughout San Diego County. This program is supported by grant writing, and multiple fund raising events.
Fee-Based Workshops -- ArtReach also works in schools with the ability to pay for programs. All schools receive sequential, standards-based lessons with a focus on creating original art.
Festivals -- ArtReach offers free art activities at festivals for kids and adults.
We continue to focus on fundraising to support our Free Workshop Program and we have been awarded grants by Qualcomm, the Ramona Community Foundation, the Eastman Family Foundation and more.
While we work to increase capacity, we continue to maintain high standards for our sequential, standards-based curriculum and we work with teachers and participate in professional development with San Diego County Office of Education Visual Performing Arts Department to insure that our workshops are relevant and engaging.
