Youth Arts Initiative

The Art League's outreach programming includes creative collaborations and projects with organizations and groups serving vulnerable and at-risk children and young adults from underserved local communities:

 

SOHO

The Art League’s collaboration with SOHO, Inc.—now in its 13th year— continues to strengthen the City of Alexandria’s ability to reach and intervene for youth who would otherwise be at-risk for delinquent behavior.

 

The Space of Her Own project is an afterschool art-based mentoring program designed to use art as a catalyst for change in at-risk youth in the local community and the region. This program year, The Art League’s commitment to this life-transforming program takes the form of targeted visual arts education curriculum across multiple Alexandria-based SOHO chapters. Here is link to a clay animation that the girls created in December around the theme of bullying: http://youtu.be/gOehUv5tO_Y

 

 

 

RECENT COMMUNITY PROJECTS


 

The Art League partnered with the USO to provide a creative T-Shirt screening retreat for young cancer patients at the Murtha Cancer Center at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for military personnel and their families.

 


 

Tenants and Workers United builds the power of the low-income community of color – primarily immigrants – to create changes that positively impact the quality of all of our lives in Alexandria. The Tenants and Workers United Summer Youth Institute provides cultural opportunities for Alexandria girls and boys ages 12-18. The Art League partnered with TWU to provide visual arts curriculum that aligned with the life lesson plans of the Institute.
