Celebrating Art Education

Art Education

We believe that hands-on artmaking
provides a strong pathway for individual
and community wellness.

Mural Arts’ Art Education Program provides more than 2,000 Philadelphia youth with access to year-round quality art education courses at schools and community sites across Philadelphia. The goals of Mural Arts’ Art Education Program span academic enrichment, social connection, creative expression and development of life skills. Our program’s multidisciplinary approach addresses the artistic needs of children who may not otherwise have access to the arts. Classes strive to heal, unite and change minds, empowering students to uncover their unique creative voices.
