Art changes everything.

Community Impact

“City ArtWorks is a really fun organization providing creative experiences to children and the community. It is a trustworthy organization with a huge heart!” – Jenn R.

With your help, we’ve taught art classes to over 5,250,000 children across the Greater Houston area since 1982. But we aren’t done yet. Here’s how you can get involved.


1 in 4 children lack access to art education. Yet studies show youth with substantial engagements with art score higher on standardized tests and are twice as likely to go to college and get a degree. Every child should have the opportunity to succeed in life, and art helps contribute to this success.


Enroll in our classes and start fostering the development of creative, collaborative and problem-solving skills. Classes are taught by trained art instructors who use specially developed lessons for children. Art is fun and our classes are designed to inspire children to develop their creativity.


Give to help a child receive art classes. Students involved in the arts are 4x more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, 4x more likely to engage in math and science, and 5% less likely to drop out of school. Donate to give a child a chance to succeed in school and life.


Join our team of volunteers. City ArtWorks was founded by volunteers and needs the support of volunteers like you! We have many needs for volunteers throughout the year and could use your help. Share your time and talent with City ArtWorks and help make a difference in a child’s life.


Get our Art After School program at your school and positively change the lives of our future leaders. There is a long-term pattern of decline in school-based art education offerings. Studies show art can positively impact the entire school culture. Call or email us and let’s make it happen!


Sponsor our programs and help us champion positive change throughout the Houston community. Art helps children succeed in school and succeed in life. Children with high engagements with art are more likely to graduate from college, earn gainful employment and volunteer in the community.

Freedom to think.

Join the 5 million+ happy students of City ArtWorks and see why they love it so much!
