Community Arts Program

The Community Arts Program engages local youth in after-school programs throughout Hartford in Studio Programs offered at the museum, combining a 45 minute docent-guided tour with a related 45 minute art-making activity with our Resident Teaching Artist. The program encourages the 21st Century Skills of collaboration and communication by fostering dialogue and art-making based on objects in the Wadsworth’s collection.
It is so wonderful to see how interested and confident they are walking and viewing and talking about the art at the Atheneum.
