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:
- The arts have the power to engage youth in learning as agents of creativity, intellect, and self-efficacy.
- Engaged students, empowered teachers, and art making can improve well-being and change communities.
UW Community Arts Collaboratory Programs
All of our virtual programs will be running as planned. We are following UW–Madison campus policy regarding in-person program cancellations. Please check the UW-Madison COVID-19 website for updates.
