ARCK in the NEWS:

Moving forward -- Art Resource Collaborative for Kids was born this summer 2012-- Parents, Educators, Artists, Teaching Artists, Interns from the SMFA, and Elected officials all working together to support more creative visual art in the Boston Public Schools. We are working with the Gardner Pilot Academy in Allston, MA.  Our curriculum and themes incorporates and support's the school's daily effort in literacy and core academics.  We celebrate the diversity, culture, and community of the school through art and exhibitions of student's art work.  Our recent "Kick off for Art" fundraiser  was very successful and well attended.  Here is an article that came out simultaneously with the event from the Boston Courant -- section Beacon Hill.






Our past success story at Josiah Quincy Elementary School (JQES), in Chinatown, downtown Boston.
We had a very successful initiative and a pilot program started at JQES.  Parents, educators, artists, and community members all volunteered to give a wonderful gift of visual art. The theme of our workshops and festival was, "Diversity Thru Art".

Here is a video and an article about our event and initiative:

We are going to celebrate our cultural community arts education through out the Boston Public Schools.  We hope you can get involved in making ARCK a great organization- where we can all  connect and collaborate to ensure our children have hands-on high quality visual art experiences.
