ArtPark Studios - a non-profit arts organization is a gospel-minded social start-up designed to bring free summer arts programming to Houston's under-served communities. Our primary focus is to combat summer knowledge loss of low income students through community based visual arts projects and creative instruction. Additionally, our year-round operations provide creative opportunities for a variety of communities in need including adults, children and youth.
Our model is simple. Through a retail offering of our mobile art studio experience, ArtPark is an opportunity for people to use their creativity to provide arts enrichment to others. When you buy an art making experience at an ArtPark Studio Pop-Up, your purchase helps to provide free summer arts programming for kids who would otherwise not have an opportunity to make art.
make art+make a change
At ArtPark, we believe that creativity is a gift from God and that He places it uniquely in each and
everyone of us. To be good stewards of this gift, we are committed to providing ways for people to connect to their own creativity while sharing it with others. Community art making is a natural and unassuming way to share the love of Christ.
