Description

ABOUT ART WORKS NOW:

Art Works Now (AWN)’s mission is to create greater access to visual arts education as part of our vision of a more just world.

Our work providing access is complemented by our curriculum, which often focuses on social justice issues. It is our belief that the arts transform lives and that art can be a vehicle for change in many ways. To that end, we work to educate our students on important issues that impact their lives and provide them with a safe space to create art that speaks to their views on issues that impact their lives.
