Arts in Education programs in conjunction with the South Carolina Arts Commission provide invaluable experiences for students of Anderson County. Access to the Arts is integral in providing a well-rounded educational experience and more schools than not are finding a competitive advantage in the arts.
We have partnered with the Anderson Count Alternative School and created a special program for At Risk Youth attending the school ages 12-18 (grades 6th-12th). Through this program we have been able to provide once a week 90 minute instruction with professional artists in a community facility to 35 students or roughly 38% of the school’s current enrollment developing into part of their annual curriculum. These at risk students have been given an opportunity to engage in hands on arts experiences and a nontraditional exploration of personal achievement, high expectations, problem solving, and positive self-expression. With the help of private and corporate donors along with grant assistance this program is continuing to grow and become a real “heartbeat” of the Anderson Arts Center.
WE'D LOVE FOR YOU TO JOIN US!
