Our Mission​

ART YARD BKLYN is a not-for-profit arts organization that offers art education programs for underserved kids, teens, adults, and practicing artists of all ages providing direct access to contemporary visual art.   We believe that art is a holistic endeavor that allows us to delve into any topic imaginable. The practice of learning, creating, thinking, and discussing art nourishes people of all ages in body, mind, heart, and spirit. In addition, through the act of looking outside oneself, the creative act fosters a sense of civic responsibility and awareness of social justice.

ART YARD BKLYN is a safe haven where everyone is treated with kindness and respect. We are a community of creative thinkers, expansive dreamers, and well-educated art makers.
