The Bridge opens our doors to the students of Clark Elementary and provide them the opportunity to connect with artists from our community, while learning and creating together.  The Bridge provides a welcoming environment, allowing kids to engage with the creativity happening in their own community. Kids will have unique opportunities to discover talents, interests, curiosities, problem solving and critical thinking skills in a comfortable and inspiring environment.

smART KIDS at The Bridge is a 14-week Multi-Media Arts Program corresponding with each semester of the school year. It consists of three workshop series, taught by three different Charlottesville artists. The program provides a paid opportunity for community artists to share their practice, connect with their community, and learn from youth, too!
