Program Description

What?

For more than 20 years, ArtsReach has provided free music and visual art programming to thousands of children through local community centers and shelters at absolutely no cost to the students or sites. Current programming includes a brass band, choirs, a keyboard lab, music workshops and mixed media visual art classes.

Why?

ArtsReach embodies the mission of Arts+ to unleash creativity, transform lives and build community through outstanding and accessible arts education. The students we serve face a number of barriers to their success, from homelessness to under-resourced schools to emotional and behavioral problems.

Who?

ArtsReach currently reaches more than 300 students each year at four program sites — Community Services Association @ First Baptist Church-West, Charlotte Family Housing, Alexander Youth Network and the Greater Enrichment Program at Ashley Park Elementary. At each of these sites, Arts+ provides high-quality music and arts programming developed to suit the individual needs of the populations served there.
