Art Intimacy Pop-Ups are arts experiences that increase arts access in the triangle’s lowest-income communities. The goal is to develop quality arts experiences that produce creativity, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills in youth participants. Each pop-up delivers arts learning experiences through Creation Stations, hands-on activities that focus on literacy and the arts. To ensure the entire community is involved, we enlist local artists to exhibit art, give artist talks, and perform! We encourage families to collaborate with local businesses and complete a one-day community beautification project (a mural, painted rocks, or garden art!). Partnering with local organizations and business who donate free books, art supplies, and recycled items (used for our Something from Nothing Station) make it all possible! Our awesome project will include a selfie photo session using Fujifilm Instax Cameras, a personal art journal to take home, and lots of other artsy stuff! Did we mention it’s free for all attendees, but online registration is required.
