Art in the Village
For over a decade, the USC Fisher Museum of Art has been proud to facilitate Art in the Village, a visual arts outreach program funded through the Good Neighbors Campaign. Art in the Village provided over 2,000 local students with free art supplies and lessons to give students the opportunity to create art in the classroom to share with the community. Although Art in the Village has ended, USC Fisher Museum continues its work with the community with Young@Art, a new program which provides free curriculum-based tours and corresponding art projects to local students, as well as providing free events and art making workshops held throughout the year.
In an effort to expand our art outreach to local elementary schools, the USC Fisher Museum of Art created the Art in the Village program. Funded for ten consecutive years by a generous grant from USC Neighborhood Outreach, part of USC's Good Neighbor's Campaign, Art in the Village represents a partnership between the USC Fisher Museum of Art, the University Village Shopping Center and the USC Family of Schools.
Kindergarten through fifth grade students at nine schools are eligible to participate in the Art in the Village program.
