Welcome to the D.R.A.W.
WE INVITE YOU TO MAKE ART, SHARE ART AND TEACH ART.
The Department of Regional Art Workers is a growing community of artists, educators, entrepreneurs and students who believe in the ability of the arts to act as an agent of change.
We believe a strong art education significantly enhances the character, quality of life, and economy of our neighborhoods.
DRAW programming is built on a spiraling intergenerational framework where expertise, interaction and experience generate ongoing community learning.
Dept. of Regional Art Workers Fall Schedule
Join us at our headquarters, at the YMCA, and dive in to the arts. Our schedule offers something for all levels and interests. Classes are taught by local teaching artists, who will be sharing their expertise in book arts, printmaking, paper cutting, and fashion. We also offer opportunities for youth. Our Pop Up Gallery Group is a High School work-study program focused on job training. Students are exposed to jobs available through our local arts industry. Arts management, arts education and entrepreneurship. As PUGG members gain can high school credit and training, they can apply for paid positions. Look for a Middle School open studio, coming soon.
