ArtReach after School

ArtReach after School
Master Class at THEARC, Southeast D.C.
ArtReach after School is the Corcoran’s award-winning community arts program, and this exhibition highlights the work of advanced students in its Master Class at THEARC, the Corcoran’s community partner in Southeast D.C. The Master Class is designed for students who have participated in the Corcoran's museum outreach program and who attend ArtReach after School classes year after year to further their creative and technical skills. Students learn about portfolio development and gain advanced studio arts techniques while exploring current Corcoran exhibitions and the collection in more depth. 

Our vision for the Master Class includes: 

  • college admission preparation
  • exhibition design and installation
  • articulation of intent through artist statements and critiques
  • collaborations with artists, community and government organizations, and the Corcoran College of Art + Design 

This year, our collaborators included the Department of State’s Art in Embassies program, The Washington Ballet, artist Nick Cave, and college students from the Corcoran’s Wear. Strut. Occupy. course and David Levinthal Curatorial Seminar class.
