Initiative Purpose and Goals: 

Artists Working in Education, Inc. (AWE) sponsors professional artists to nurture the imaginations of youth by bringing creative visual arts experiences directly to schools, community centers and informal settings such as parks, playgrounds, libraries and community events.

AWE artists guide children through the process of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. Meaningful arts programming helps youth develop new ways of seeing the world, enhanced inquisitiveness, creativity, flexibility, imagination and confidence.

OUR APPROACH TO ART EDUCATION

THE ARTS ARE AN ESSENTIAL PART OF OUR HUMANITY.

ARTISTS ARE VALUABLE MENTORS WHO HELP US TO ENVISION OURSELVES AND OUR COMMUNITIES IN NEW WAYS.

SAFE, SUPPORTIVE SPACES ARE NECESSARY FOR HEALTHY COMMUNITIES.

THE YOUTH, NEIGHBORHOODS, AND PARTNERS WE WORK WITH HAVE SELF-DETERMINATION.
