Art on the Street
December 26, 2019
Along with CAR, three years ago the Art Squad started the program Art on the Street. They teach art lessons during the summer for those interested in the neighborhood. The first year the group set up on different street corners in St. Peter’s-Waterway neighborhoods. The next year it did classes in the community garden and this past summer it held lessons in Waterway Park.
The group has always averaged 18-20 participants from ages 5 to 70. It is one of the group’s favorite activities during the summer. The program was originally funded through LISC of Greater Kansas City but has operated on donations to the CHWC Youth Art Fund.
