For more than 20 years, ArtReach has provided high-quality year-round, community-based art education to children ages 5-18 living in underserved areas of Indianapolis. This free afterschool and summer studio art program serves approximately 1,000 youth at 26 sites annually. During their semester-long ArtReach class, students learn art-making, art history, art criticism and aesthetics and gain valuable self-confidence and self-expression along the way.


Every spring ArtReach students are invited to exhibit their artwork at the ArtReach Exhibition. The artwork they’ve created is professionally displayed in the Art Center’s Hurt and Clowes galleries for their friends, family, and community to see.
