Great Hearts Initiatives | SkyArt

Mission

With art at the center of everything we do, SkyART provides free, safe, open spaces where young people are empowered and connections are made.

Our work is guided by these core concepts:
• Accessibility – we remove barriers – promoting participation in our programs, connection with other institutions and communities, and access to the broader world.
• Responsiveness – we innovate – adapting programs to the evolving context within which we work, fostering civic engagement, cultural democracy, and social wellbeing.
• Totality – we are committed to reaching the whole person – recognizing that every participant has a unique life experience characterized by their own needs, assets, and interests.
• Stability – we are a consistent presence – the “third place” after home and school, where participants develop meaningful relationships and experience a feeling of extended family.

SkyART provides a broad range of free visual art programming to young people through our Studio, School, and Community Programs. Studio Programs take place at the SkyART Studios in South Chicago five days a week and are defined by an innovative approach we call the SkyWAY, which is a shift in perspective that blurs the lines of formal art education and focuses on art making as an inherently educational experience. School Programs take place in our network of partnering schools on Chicago's South Side and include in-class Arts Integration delivered by SkyART Teaching Artists in partnership with classroom teachers, After-School classes, and Parent/Teacher Workshops. Community Programs take place at facilities that are coordinated by partnering community organizations and range from 1-day workshops to multi-week art courses.
