Our objective at ART Inc involves making arts education affordable and accessible to all children, youth, and their families throughout the Peoria area regardless of their financial situation. Our programs provide a window of opportunity by offering a safe, nurturing environment for the area youth who would otherwise be on the street during peak juvenile crime hours. The Romain Arts & Culture Center is nearly fifty thousand square feet and is being used for creating, inspiring, and teaching those who have generally been left behind.
ART Inc provides K-12 students with multidisciplinary arts-based instruction during the most crucial hours of a child’s day. This school year students will have the opportunity to learn about coding, film making, theater, dance, STEAM DIY projects, robotics, foreign language, creative writing, music, and visual arts.
ART Inc provides home school students with quality instruction in a broad range of arts during the day.
ART Inc provides early childhood arts education classes to children ages 0-5 years old and their caregivers. Our classes focus on quality multidisciplinary arts-based instruction such as Spanish, Music and Movement, and Visual Arts to name a few.
Summer Arts Camp:
Our summer arts camp consists of students choosing a major from our list of multiclasses then being exposed to all our classes in order to choose a minor. Classes are age-based and enroll a maximum of 10 students.
This summer kicked off our first Summer Arts Camp. We provided 34 students, ages 11-14, with the opportunity to learn about coding, filmmaking, drama, dance, STEAM activities and visual Arts. 20 students who could not afford tuition were given financial need scholarships, which were made available through generous donations from individuals and corporations like you.
In the Schools:
In partnership with Peoria Public Schools, we provide teaching artists for their 21st Century Learning Centers program in the following areas: yoga, visual arts, dance, theater, film-making, STEAM, sewing, cooking, music classes, and other arts based classes. Throughout the course of the 2018-2019 school year, we provided employment for at least 20 different artists and served well over 200 students.
