Give $20 to Help ArtReach Students Develop Meaningful Connections Between Art and Life
In our video, you can meet three young Washington, D.C. residents—Kayla, Alex, and Marie—who are learning about the world and themselves through art.
ArtReach, the Corcoran’s community art program, is celebrating its 20th year of high-quality visual arts education in local communities. The program extends the resources of the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the College of Art + Design to diverse neighborhoods. Partnering with community organizations around the city, we provide after-school programs, summer classes, and workshops to underserved youth (ages 8–18) and their families. The program serves more than 300 students a year.
Your $20 gift helps ArtReach give more kids like Kayla, Alex, and Marie the opportunity to create something that they believe in.
Students who participate in arts learning experiences often improve their achievement in other realms of learning and life.

Art allows me to express myself, master a skill that I love, and soothe my soul.
