Access Arts began in 1971. Our mission is to provide creative learning experiences for everyone. We offer instruction in a variety of art media, with an emphasis on serving those who are underserved.
In 2014 we created an annual signature event called CelebrARTy, to help us raise funds to support our mission. The underlying principal is that if these famous non-artists can make art, anyone can! All that's needed is quality art education. For this special event, we pair up local celebrities with local artists. Each celebrity gets to pick the medium s/he wants to learn, and we match them with artists who are skilled in those media. The artists teach the celebrities how to make something (paintings, drawings, sculpture, etc.) and each pair has a filmmaker document their journey.
When everyone's finished, we have a celebration!
