Empowering students with high-quality multi-cultural arts ed that fosters culture & community; serving children in Boston and the world.
ARCK uses art as a vehicle to unlock creativity and academic potential. Their programs go beyond art teaching to promote 21st-century skills such as empathy, self-confidence, problem solving, and global awareness.
What ARCK Does
ARCK works in under-served schools to provide arts integration programs. ARCK’s teaching artists work alongside our partner schools’ classroom teachers, ensuring that arts lessons support the school’s academic objectives.
Their unique 36-week curriculum follows modules of Leadership, Civic Engagement, and Social Justice. Lessons are infused with literacy skills and elements of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). Our STEAM curriculum was devised in partnership with MIT D-Lab and the Harvard Arts in Education initiative, and we continue to develop it.
ARCK exhibits student artwork in their schools and in local galleries and public art projects.
