INVEST IN EDUCATION
Arts-Kids use the expressive arts and group dynamics to empower all youth to build self-expression and community, along with life skills that increase communication and listening, mental and emotional health, problem solving and decision-making, and creativity.
Arts-Kids was founded in 1999 in Park City, Utah. Today Arts-Kids hosts fun, experiential learning sessions in a non-competitive space for youth ages 3-18 years of age. These sessions occur in schools, libraries, community centers and after school programs located in Park City and Salt Lake City.
Activities presented by Arts-Kids span a wide range of interest, from dance and drama to recycled art and speed stacking. Kids are exposed to different art forms while learning a critical life skills.
