UW Community Arts Collaboratory

Empowering Youth as Art Makers

We provide art-making opportunities for youth to cultivate wellness and advocate for social change. Our vision is that Wisconsin youth will see themselves as learners through art-making.

This work is built upon two core beliefs:

  1. The arts have the power to engage youth in learning as agents of creativity, intellect, and self-efficacy.
  2. Engaged students, empowered teachers, and art making can improve well-being and change communities.
