Currently on view through January 31, 2020.

The ArtReach GW Community Gallery at THEARC presents artwork from students in the ArtReach after-school program, portfolio development classes, and therapeutic art classes. In the after-school program, students engaged in S.T.E.A.M. education activities with the GW Innovation Center and Georgetown MakerHub, nutrition education with DC Central Kitchen, clay with District Clay Center, and visual arts skills with local professional artists. In addition, textile works that tell personal stories and collaborative mixed media works created by families living East of the River.

ArtReach GW builds programs and partnerships that foster community connections and civic engagement through the visual fine arts.  As a part of the Honey W Nashman Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service at George Washington University, ArtReach free art programs and collaborative art projects are a vehicle to strengthen cross-cultural understanding, activate citizenship, and develop valuable art and design skills.  ArtReach provides a safe, supportive, and enjoyable environment where DC youth and families make connections between art and their lives.
