From our Teaching Artist workshops and general celebrations of our Young Artists and our programming, there is never a dull moment with ArtWorks!

Thank You Elena and Parker!

For their 5th birthday, Elena and Parker wanted to share their love of art with the ArtWorks Kids so they asked their friends and family for donations of art supplies instead of presents. Their supply drive was a HUGE success and this week they delivered a box filled with over 100 small craft kits, paint sets and other amazing gifts. We are inspired and grateful for their generosity. #LetArtHeal
