Access Art delivers a youth-centered after school program to address the artistic, emotional, & cognitive development of youth in Baltimore.
We are a youth-focused community arts organization that inspires personal success by providing a safe space for hands-on learning in a variety of artistic media combined with civic engagement and leadership development..
Our daily mission and purpose at Access Art is to encourage youth explore their creativity, connect with positive adult role models, engage in empowering activities, as well as take part in valuable opportunities for leadership. Each year youth in our program build on their comprehensive art skills, deepen the connection to their own creative process, learn how to enhance their ability to affect their communities, and finally gain skills to become teaching assistants, mentors and entrepreneurs.
Since we believe youth are part of larger systems in their community that affect their potential, we deliver services that span both the school day and out of school time hours including summer programming. For 20 years Access Art has served the Baltimore community through Award Winning After School Art Programs, Leadership Development Initiatives, and Neighborhood Art Projects.
