WINDOW ON A WIDER WORLD
The Amarillo Art Institute provides a Math in Art program and Resident Artist program to schools across the Panhandle in partnership with Window On A Wider World. Many of the schools we teach at do not have any or very little art programming in grades K-12. Through interactive drawing and using core curriculum students retain more information and learn how to use art in a variety of ways.
YELLOW CITY YOUTH ARTISTS
This program is geared for youth ages 13-18 and began as a way to fill the gap between kids classes and adult classes. However, as we progressed, we realized there was a big need for this age group to learn art and begin to utilize art as a form of therapy. Currently, the program is open to any student in the age range, and we work closely with the Amarillo Children's Home to serve their youth as well.
AAI has given classes at The PARC, Ussery Roan, Park Central, The Cottages, and other senior living facilities. We offer individualized classes for those of all ages and walks of life to have access to art. Our healing Art program typically consists of an instructor bringing supplies to a facility and hosting a regular art lesson. This program hopes to expand to other facilities to help those with limited access to art. If you would like to help this program go, consider sponsoring here.
