Our goal is to promote art, cultural diversity and creativity by supporting art education.

Learning about cultures through art enhances awareness, builds personal and collective identities, and enhances tolerance and appreciation of others.


With the District of Columbia, an extraordinarily diverse community with roots in Africa, Latin America, Asia and Eastern Europe as our vital resource, we are presently expanding our Art Education Network to represent more fully the cultural and ethnic mosaic of the District. 


By promoting art educators of every ethnic and cultural background, we will be providing lively, on-going and concrete opportunities for the DC community to benefit from art education and cultural diversity. 


The Art Education Network will help artists grow, identify potential sources of  funding, fellowships, educational and exchange opportunities, provide exhibit space for the students work, as well as convene artists to share ideas  and build  supportive communities.
