EDUCATION & OUTREACH
The Pelham Art Center aims to make art accessible to everyone through a range of programs including art education, affordable art classes, and need-based scholarships. The Pelham Art Center has initiated outreach programs to bring art to under-served communities and reaches over 16,000 people per year through the arts. Programming is available for all ages, from toddlers to seniors. Classes and workshops have included drawing, painting, ceramics, collage, digital design, fashion illustration, book making, writing, floral arranging, printmaking, digital video, and animation.
In the past year the Pelham Art Center has worked with Prospect Hill Elementary School, Amani Charter School, Hamilton Elementary School, Edward Williams Elementary School, Imani Cultural Academy, The Guidance Center of Westchester, Project Community, Senior Programs with the Wartburg at the Pelham Art Center, Ardsley High School, the Girls Scouts and Boy Scouts of America, the Junior League of Pelham, WJCS Summer Fun in the Park Summer Program, and the Mount Vernon Youth Summer GEM.
Need based scholarships for classes and workshops are available for all ages from the Pelham Art Center throughout the year. We believe art should be accessible for everyone.
