Art Road provides art instruction at Edison Elementary School in Detroit every Friday from September to June. With the help of Mercedes-Benz Financial Services, we were able to renovate the art room. We refinished the floors and rehabilitated an old unused greenhouse attached to the art room.
Art Road provides art instruction at the Charles Wright Academy of Arts & Science on Monday's & Wednesday's.
Art Road provides art instruction at Charles L. Spain Elementary on Tuesdays.
Students create art with the help of a teacher who usually is a practicing professional artist. Our students regularly produce work that exceeds standards set forth by the Michigan Educational standards.
Our students range in age from 6 to 12. And class sizes are large: about 30 students per class. Since 30 kids would be a lot to manage especially with active art in the room, we supplement the teacher with volunteers who help distribute the project and answer questions. Perhaps you have an interest in volunteering.
