About Art Road Nonprofit
Art Road provides special arts activity classes, including supplies and an instructor, at no cost to elementary schools that lack art programs.
The classes are single- or multi-day sessions that introduce children to the work of artists, provide historical perspective, and bring the entire experience into focus with hands-on creative arts projects such as painting, drawing, sculpture or mixed media.
There are benefits for all children with Art Road classes: increased interest in school, improved test scores, better problem solving skills, a creative outlet to pressure from family or peers, and a sense of pride and accomplishment.
Art Road currently teaches at Edison Elementary School, the Charles Wright Academy of Arts & Science, and the Charles L. Spain Elementary School in Detroit.
In January 2014 Art Road through a grant from the Max M. & Marjorie S. Fisher Foundation brought our Art Program and art classes back to Charles L. Spain Elementary School (Beaubien & Mack).
In 2011 Art Road Nonprofit brought it's art program to 400 students at the Charles H. Wright Academy of Arts and Science in Detroit for the 2011/2012 school year.
We are able to teach 800 students art class twice per month currently at Edison and Charles Wright.
Art Road Nonprofit is now providing art classes to 800 students for the 2011/2012 school year!
