Art is transformative. Through art, young people can discover the joy of expression and creation. They can explore their sense of self while connecting to others. Art can expand their view of the world, transforming the way they see their own potential and that of their community. Art will help children and youth build the confidence to spread their wings and pursue their dreams—and if they want their wings to be striped, spotted, or paint splattered, we say go for it!

Culture for Kids in the Arts believes that art is a lifelong passion that can begin at a very young age. Our programs have been designed to engage and inspire all children and youth, from early infancy through young adulthood. Every child loves the magic of creating, but many children don’t have the opportunity to explore their imagination through a creative practice. We believe the arts should be accessible to everyone, which is why we offer innovative programs and work with community partners to remove the geographic, social and financial barriers that can prevent young people from participating.
