ARTISTS IN ACTION

For grades 7th-12th

Students explore a relevant social issue, create original art about the issue, and share their work with a broader audience to inspire change. Artists In Action residencies are planned in collaboration with school leaders and youth and result in creative products shared with a wider audience.

Sample projects include anti-vaping memes shared with teen peers online, community building murals shared with a school or neighborhood, and an original song about healthy relationships shared with peers at school assembly.
