Art Reach

The Department of Art and Design at Southeast Missouri State sponsors this after school art program to empower underserved youth through relationship building and art making activities. Art educators and artists volunteer their time to enrich the lives of the Art Reach students. The curriculum explores a variety of cultures, disciplines, and media. Guest artists discuss and demonstrate their art processes. An exhibit of the Art Reach students’ work is displayed annually at the River Campus Center during the River Campus Arts Festival in June and at the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri in August.
