Art Enrichment Experiences

While many schools have been forced to cut arts programs for budgetary reasons, longitudinal data indicates that visual and performing arts continue to be areas of high interest for many young people and their parents. If you have observed similar data and wish to reintroduce or augment your arts curriculum with limited investment, we can help!

Skyrocket offers full-day, off-site opportunities to students (and staff) to meet and learn from professional artists, designers, and experts in various creative fields. Participants will gain hands-on experience with visual art mediums, and learn about the context and historical relevance of artistic movements. Each event is designed to promote:

Social-emotional wellness

Creative self-expression and cultural awareness
