Art 180 works with Richmond’s youth, ages 8-18, helping them to grow into self-awareness, better their community, and learn expressive skills. Programs for younger children occur mostly in schools or at community centers, through partnerships with organizations like Communities in Schools, the Boys and Girls Club, and Rosmy. A new downtown Arts District site, Atlas, is dedicated to programming for older youths, providing “a place that teens can call their own.” One of these teens, Prekeisha, tells Inspire Indeed that she got involved with Art 180 and the push for a teen specific building (eventually made possible through a grant from Impact 100) because the diversity of expression engaged her positively and gave her a dream to work hard for. Ways to get involved making art range from intensive classes to stopping by during the First Friday Art Walk, and professional artists with a creative skill (as simple as painting or as unique as spoken word or culinary arts) can volunteer to teach a class.
