Through our after-school curriculum, The Smart Project (TSP) is dedicated to imparting creative skills and character traits that will prepare students for future careers in the Arts and Technology. Our program offers a holistic approach, combining enrichment activities with academic learning.
Our teaching artists are committed to creating an engaging learning environment. They continually assess and adapt strategies to keep students actively involved in developmental projects. We emphasize active participation and reflection during our creative exploratory learning sessions.
To accommodate the schedules of our young artists, our program runs on Saturdays. We offer core workshops in digital media, photography, and various traditional media arts. Additionally, our portfolio program serves as a college gateway program, guiding students toward a future in the arts and technology.
The Smart Project is proud to offer a free program for young artists. We understand that financial constraints should never stand in the way of nurturing talent and creativity among the youth.
Our commitment to providing a cost-free program ensures that aspiring artists, regardless of their economic background, can access valuable resources, mentorship, and opportunities to explore and develop their artistic abilities.
By removing financial barriers, we aim to create a more inclusive and diverse community of young artists, fostering an environment where talent can flourish without limitations. Our belief is that every young person should have the chance to explore their artistic potential and have their voices heard.
Through this free program, we hope to empower the next generation of artists to thrive, express themselves, and contribute their unique perspectives to the world of art
