"Here's Our Art" - The Artistic Shelter

The Artistic Shelter provides multidisciplinary arts education to the children and youth of DMV in a nurturing, creative community where young people discover their inherent talents and gifts. The Artistic Shelter also, brings a diverse community together to give under-served children and youth the opportunity to explore and study the visual and performing arts in an after school safe haven.

• Rhythmic Drum-Instrumental and vocal music at The Artistic Shelter Center provides an outlet for individual and ensemble performance. Students have the opportunity to build skills like teamwork while playing with others, as well as develop the ability to work through a variety of situations as they learn technique on their individual drums.

• Visual Arts- at The Artistic Shelter provides students with an opportunity to express their feelings through a number of diverse mediums, including paint, sculpture, and drawing. Students learn to view their surroundings differently, express their feelings visually, and discover their uniqueness through images that they create.

• The dramatic arts at the Artistic Shelter provides an outlet for self-expression through role playing, thinking strategically and situation, and working as a team.

• Creative Writing -at the Artistic Shelter offers students an opportunity to expand their imaginations and to discover that writing can be an artistic and meaningful activity.
