The moment a child moves their crayon across a sheet of paper or dances to their favorite song something powerful and magical begins in their mind, heart, and soul — like a seed taking root. That something is art — and we believe it exists to transform children’s lives. Designed for students from 5K through 12th, ArtFields Jr. offers an array of year-round art programs such as field trip opportunities, interactive hands-on experiences and a statewide art competition that provides creative fine arts outlets for children and teens in the Lake City and its surrounding areas.
ArtFields Jr. gives children from Lake City and the surrounding areas the chance to engage in and be nurtured by art. Through our programs, participants have the opportunity to do things that they rarely get to do such as see live artist performances and art exhibitions, spend time talking with real artists, and learn and deepen their skills with a variety of artists representing a multitude of art disciplines.
Research shows that art boosts children’s achievement in everything from language, math, problem-solving, and inventiveness to conflict resolution, expression, and empathy, but perhaps art’s true gift is its ability to transport kids to a safe, welcoming world where they can explore their passions, release confining feelings and ideas, and discover a sense of joy and belonging that inspires everything they do — forever. That’s how we change the world — one young artists at a time.
Check out the great artwork that our South Carolina student artists have created throughout the years of ArtFields.
From handson experiences led by local art professionals to educational art tours, our programs inspire the creativity in kids of all ages.
