The 3 R’S-Artful Reuse
The 3 R’s Reduce, Reuse, Recycle workshops emphasize using discards, scraps, and other materials destined for the landfill to create an artistic product. Youth build basic art skills and learn about stewardship for the environment, as artists guide them through a fun and creative art making experience.
Many Cultures/Many Voices emphasizes learning about other cultures, art forms and celebrations, while promoting our common bond as people reliant on a healthy environment worldwide.
Artist’s Studio for Teens
In the Artist’s Studio for Teens youth focus on visual arts projects that teach the elements and principles of design using different media. Each workshop features a famous artist and his/her work to motivate the lesson. Youth learn about the artist’s life and discuss the work. Then they create a painting, sculpture, print, or collage inspired by this work.
Performing Arts Performances and Workshops
ArtStart offers both performances and workshops led by professional artists who bring music, art, dance, and stories of diverse cultures into the classroom or community programs. All performances/workshops listed can be expanded into a school residency program.
And don’t forget – ArtStart’s ScrapMobile program is prepared to cater to a gathering of thousands at a festival or large event! We began catering festivals in 1993 and believe we have it down to a science, Hassle and trouble-free, we provide the idea, the artists and the materials all prepared for you. You can rest assured attendees will have a memorable and creative time at your event with ArtStart’s ArtScraps programming.
