At the Art Center, we do a lot of work in schools and right here on site to help provide arts education programming to Chicago's youth. Today, Teresa Albor, a practicing artist, shares her perspective on her work with one of our outreach programs called Perspectives. In Perspectives, whole classrooms of kids come to the Art Center to get hands-on in our studios, exploring many different kinds of artistic styles, methods, and practices—with the help of a teaching artist like Teresa. Read on to find out what makes this work worth it for her, and head to our Outreach page to learn more about our programs.
It's now more important than ever to ensure diversity in and access to the visual arts.
