We remain open to designing creative partnerships that further our mission and help to bring the arts to a broader audience within the community.

THE HOUSTON ARBORETUM & NATURE CENTER
Art & Nature – Art Enrichment Classes
City ArtWorks provides fun, creative art classes inspired by nature at HANC during the spring break and summer camps. For more information about these summer classes, please go to www.HoustonArboretum.org.
TEXAS CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL CANCER CENTER
Arts in Medicine at Texas Children’s Cancer Center
Working in concert with the Arts in Medicine program at Texas Children’s Cancer Center, City ArtWorks offers clinic and bedside art instruction for young patients in the Cancer, Hematology, and Bone Marrow Transplant and Renal units. These children and their families face serious illness and health issues but find the opportunity to express them through art both exciting and therapeutic. This program is generously funded by City ArtWorks’ long-time supporter, Mrs. Sybil Roos, and other charitable individuals.
Art Programming in Low Income Housing
City ArtWorks partners with Texas Inter-Faith to provide Art After School for children of low-income families in 12 Inter-Faith housing properties. Thanks to grants from the Simmons Foundation and Texas Inter-Faith Housing, these children will not only be housed with dignity but will have a chance to express themselves through their art.
ORANGE SHOW ART BUS
Art is on the Move Through New Modes of Transportation
Aboard the Orange Show’s vintage school bus turned mobile educational outreach center and art studio, City ArtWorks provides dynamic art classes to pre-k through 8th grade students in area schools. For more information please click here.
