ART • COMMUNITY • LEADERSHIP
IMPORTANT: COVID-19 Updates
In alignment with Baltimore City Schools and for the safety of our students and staff in response to the Coronavirus, Access Art will be closed and all after school classes are cancelled at all sites until further notice. As more information becomes available we will reach out to parents to let you know about plans forward. Please check out the Access Art resource link in our CLOSING RESOURCES menu above for more information and resources available for families in Baltimore City during this challenging time.
ACCESS ART is a youth-focused community arts organization that inspires personal success by providing a safe space for hands-on learning in a variety of artistic media combined with civic engagement and leadership development for elementary, middle and high school youth.
Serving over 100 youth each day in communities across Baltimore City, we empower participants not only with comprehensive arts skills, but tools to help them in their journey towards success such as collaboration skills, problem solving techniques, job experience and a positive self-image.
WHAT WE DO
After School Art Programs
Access Art provides comprehensive out of school time art and leadership programming to address the artistic, emotional, and cognitive development of youth ages 6-18.
YOUTH IN OUR PROGRAMS
We partner closely with local schools to promote youth achievement, connect families to needed resources, improve school climate, and help remove the barriers that keep youth from coming to school regularly.
We leverage and coordinate resources, funding, and projects that support community enhancement through creativity and art. These projects include exhibits, murals, billboards, public sculpture, and vacant lot restoration.
