Community Arts @Ayuda


MISSION
Our community arts program is centered on providing high-quality arts education to youth and their families in North Philadelphia through the cultivation of a safe space to explore various artistic mediums and positively progress spiritually

We develop relationships on three levels:

  • After School Arts (Pre-K – 8th Grade): We believe that integrating creative arts into our After School programs encourages students to learn about new forms of expression and theories in art education. It is also a great chance to nurture and develop creativity, curiosity, and positive relationships.
  • Youth (ages 10-18): Our Youth Art Courses offered in the fall and spring provide art training and mentor relationships for the youth in our community.
  • Adults: Adult Art Workshops provide art exposure and creative skill building for adults. These workshops also provide some “time away” to do creative work together as neighbors. ┬áThese art-based workshops focus on building resiliency in individuals before they get to the point of being addicted or struggling with behavioral disorders.
