about picART

Welcome to picART! Our mission is to provide innovative, high quality arts programs that empower children to create healthy futures.picART’s award-winning arts education program is designed to develop social and academic skills through the visual and performing arts. Our effective arts-based delinquency prevention program serves children ages 7 to 16 (Research shows that this is a critical age for juvenile delinquency prevention). We provide a protective environment filled with meaningful and fun activities and guidance, and provide youths with positive alternative outlets.

* Offer top quality arts programs, providing a positive, inclusive atmosphere

* Improve skills, attitudes and behaviors; motivate kids to organize projects and complete tasks, to think independently and to express themselves effectively.

* Increase interest in learning, encouraging better performance in school and regular attendance

* Keep children involved in meaningful out-of-school activities and out of the criminal justice system.
