In your Classroom


HOst a Where Art Lives teaching artist residency in your classroom

The program is fully funded via a grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission and is FREE for all participants.

  • Teachers will be provided with curriculum and support.

  • The class will receive art supplies and visits from professional artists.

  • Each student will receive their own sketchbook in which to develop their personal style and experiment with ideas for their own street art.

  • Together we will create art for a public exhibition and develop ideas for how art can benefit the community.

How can your organization be a part of this project?

We are looking for teen and transitional age youth groups and classes to provide creative logistical support for the Where Art Lives program. Youth with Upstar Records (Sunset Youth Services) have been creating videos with Where Art Lives.

We are seeking other youth teams to serve as social media managers, curators (for online and IRL exhibits), photographers, and researchers. We can provide resources to make your participation a success.
