ProjectArt empowers youth, artists and communities through partnerships with public libraries. Resident artists teach free after school art classes to youth in divested areas while developing artwork in libraries. With a scalable model, we effectively address the lack of art in LA public schools.

ProjectArt LA will provide the opportunity for young people in divested communities to express themselves creatively, overcome social barriers, and develop social skills so they can grow into thoughtful, empowered young adults. About two hundred students and teens will receive free visual arts classes taught after school hours by four local professional artists at Los Angeles Public Libraries. We will also host two art exhibitions featuring student and artist works that are free and open for the public to enjoy.
