Hello, and welcome to our online showcase for Creating Communities’ 2020 Arts Mentorship Academy. We wanted to provide a home for any and all artwork that is created throughout our camp. This website will be updated frequently throughout the month of July, showcasing new artwork and perspectives daily.
What is the Arts Mentorship Academy?
The Arts Mentorship Academy provides an opportunity for elementary and middle-school students from low-income families the opportunity to participate in diverse art forms and receive individual attention and mentoring through programs and workshops offered by master teachers and artists. By engaging in an array of intensive arts activities, students can discover inner talents while engaging in a welcoming and encouraging environment.
Beginning in 2008, the Academy is now in its 13th summer session. Creating Communities continues to increase its impact and outreach to a greater number of children by extending the summer program and adding multiple afterschool programs throughout the City of Annapolis and Anne Arundel County.
