Bringing Art Education to Kids Jul 15

It’s a generally accepted idea that if disadvantaged kids and teens had something to do that’s productive, they would end up doing that and be less inclined to fall into crime and other things that keep the “advantaged” community up at night.   Midnight basketball is a fairly well know program that typifies this thinking.

While much larger in scope and serving far more than just “at risk” kids, a Downtown LA organization called Inner City Arts is doing the same. The group - based in a stunning modern compound worthy of a mention in itself - is a nexus of creativity for underserved LA kids. It contains art studios, performances spaces, state-of-the-art equipment and offers kids a chance to cultivate their skills and imagination while putting time and energy into productive activities.

All types of arts are practiced ands cultivated here, including painting, ceramics, music, dance, drama, animation and much more. The services Inner City Arts provides are broad as well - classes and open studio sessions, summer/weekend programs, training LA public school teachers on arts education, lectures, performances and mentorships with working artists of every visual and performing arts medium.

It’s an amazing organization and beloved by the community it’s touched - over 200,000 kids since it's opened - and serves and as a role model for similar programs throughout the country.
