South Coast Artists in the Community: 2017
SCA Art is Everywhere!
SCA Art Cards have influenced thousands of kids by allowing them to see and think about art in new ways.
From preschool children to middle-school volunteers in community service, SCA delivered free art activities to over 30 local schools, museums, libraries and community spaces in the South Coast area and beyond.
Interactive art mini-projects stimulated creative thinking for 5 Head Start programs, encouraged young artists to be creative at the annual “Country Day at Pardon Gray” Fair in September, and inspired students at Westport Elementary School.
The mini exercises can be done in a class, at a gallery, museum or studio. SCA Art Cards are a free, hands-on visual arts resource for exploration and learning through art.
SCA Art for the Community
Artist demonstrations during Open Studio Tour 2017 An inspired variety of demos by artists are a part of the Open Studio Tours each summer. Families are encouraged to visit studios in order to understand the creative process and the environments that inspire each artist. Keeping art alive is important to SCA.
SCA educational opportunities for members and community Active and participatory experiences that provide artists with creative, art-based strategies for learning and development. Members can learn about materials and concepts through workshops presented by regional educators, business professionals, artists and cultural experts.
Artistic support through SCA Be on the lookout for a new SCA-sponsored program that will benefit community organizations and emerging artists within the four towns of Dartmouth and Westport, MA and Little Compton and Tiverton, RI.
