Stand Up for BRONX Art
Within that period of time, we have had the opportunity of training over one hundred local youth and adult residents. Our organization offers an array of programs, including drawing, painting, comic book art, and digital art for little to no cost at all. These efforts have been without the benefit of grant funding or sponsorship.
Our goal is not only to provide visual art instruction, but to grant access to equipment and resources to assist in the process of developing artistic skills. We intend to equip students with the tools to succeed in the art field despite their backgrounds and predispositions. Many of them are eager to be involved in art, but simply do not have the means or exposure.
The arts have been cut back in public schools and the need for cultural skill development is essential. Through this development, students also improve their self-esteem, confidence, and social skills. Our programs are tailored for afterschool and weekend schedules allowing significant flexibility for students. With these art programs we hope to establish a dynamic in which opportunities are created as a part of the neighborhood economic growth.
The creation of this campaign was pursued in hopes of raising funding to assist in introducing new art programs such as photography, sculpture, and animation. In addition, it will allow us to recruit future teaching artists and staff members with the intention of increasing our ability to work with more students.
Please consider donating to our charitable organization so we can reach as many of the Bronx’s underserved, artistic individuals!
