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:
The Afterschool Arts Outreach program is made possible by the generosity of the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation, The Jim Moran Foundation, and Mr. and Mrs. Jason T. Kalisman, with additional support provided by The Christina Orr-Cahall Endowment for Community Outreach.
Afterschool Arts Outreach at the Florence A. De George Boys and Girls Club is made possible by the generosity of Jane Carroll and Leo Arnaboldi.
