ARTreach Community Programs
What's new at ARTreach
ARTreach is utilizing new studio space donated by Ceramics by Tess, located in the Times Square Shopping Center at Grand Parkway near I-10, to offer free clay and ceramics lessons to the elderly and Alzheimer's patients.  Assisted Living Communities that are looking for engaging, free and very creative field trip opportunities for their residents are invited to the ARTreach Studio.

An ARTreach World Mural project shares art and cultures with children around the world 

Children around the world will be working together to create a unique mural that will be donated to the Texas PTA and installed in their offices in Austin. The mural is designed by Katy Artist Vickie McMillan, and reflects the cultures of Africa, Mexico, and Asia in the melting pot of America, as represented by our children, parents and teachers in Texas.
