A US based, 501(c)3 charity, LoCo Arts recognizes socio-ecologically centered creative practice as an essential catalyst for change. Fueled by this driving force, our programs and projects provide a hands-on experience that cultivates resilience and action through synthesis of artistry, community, and self.
LoCo Arts’ mission is to offer arts based creative education and cultural experiences to youth, adults and families.
In the New River Valley, the Elementary LoCo Arts After School program, Community Arts Projects, and The Mayapple School preschool classroom, offer integrated workshop cycles and classes designed to nurture and expand self-understanding, collaboration, and eco- and social action through sprite and purposeful creativity. Loudoun County houses a newly organized creative arts-based pre-K day program. Our centers offer myriad expressive opportunities for multi-faceted communities, uniting parallel cultures while recognizing individuality.
Since late 2009, the organizations co-founders have used their art therapy, creative education, and research practices to empower this dedicated work.
