Our mission is to bring arts education to economically challenged young people in the South Los Angeles Metropolitan area.  We believe that the arts inspire, motivate and stimulate creativity in children.  Our curriculum based programs and workshops supply opportunities for active learning by engaging students with skilled artists and instructors in activities that help improve reading, math, and language skills for each student.  Our goals are to help cultivate, coach, and create bridges to bright futures by helping disadvantaged children make connections and linkages to the world around them.

 

The purpose in developing an on-line club art club is primarily to encourage urban youth to value the depth of the African American cultural heritage and express such through visual arts.  The Club consists of an interactive art class on contemporary Los Angeles-based African American artists, field trips to art galleries and museums, planning and holding art exhibitions, and discussions on arts’ impact on culture and society.  All lessons meet California State Standards for visual arts, social science and history.  The Club provides established African American artists to serve as mentors to club members.  The Club also functions as an education resource and calendar for local exhibits and cultural events.  The Club provides an opportunity to the members to explore the various art-related occupations and guides interested members through the process of obtaining entrance into art schools and colleges via on-line workshops and forums.

 

We have instructors familiar with Los Angeles-based African American artists and their work. The Price Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Los Angeles presently serves as the host venue of the Club.

 

The Artworks Net Club website is a virtual gallery, which displays the club members’ art work. WAF has developed the curriculum that encompasses an extensive study guide. We have contacted four outstanding African American artists. We are honored to have their art works serve as the basis of our program. We researched each artists’ academic/artistic background, accumulating an in depth collection of their art work, along with their unique artistic techniques.

 

Our curriculum includes nationally renowned artists:

Mr. Barnes’ painting “Sugar Shack” was viewed by millions of people who watched the television show “Good Times.” Synthia St. James’ Kwanzaa United States Postal Stamp gained her national recognition. Varnette Honeywood’s art work was featured on “The Bill Cosby Show.” Charles Bibbs has gained acclaim for his breathtaking and unusual mono-prints.
