After School Arts Outreach

Throughout the year, the Museum provides innovative after-school art programs to children living in underserved communities in Palm Beach County.

Afterschool Arts Outreach provides a significant afterschool arts experience that affords a safe, consistent, and structured environment for children whose lives are often deprived of structure.  Afterschool Arts Outreach instructors are dynamic, caring role models who help their students develop self-esteem through positive achievement. Art projects and Museum tours expand the students’ world views by exposing them to multicultural and arts-integrated history, music, and literature as well as to the visual arts. It is the Museum’s joy and responsibility as an arts institution to provide this service to the community.

Afterschool Arts Outreach succeeds in reaching children through partnerships with organizations that host the program, including:

  • Farmworker Coordinating Council of Palm Beach County, Lake Worth
  • Florence de George Boys and Girls Club of Northwood
  • Gaines Park, West Palm Beach Parks and Recreation Program
  • Highridge Family Center
  • PACE Center for Girls
  • Police Athletic League and the West Palm Beach Housing Authority
  • Salvation Army Northwest Community Center
