Captivate PR is excited to be working with Inner-City Arts, a leading youth arts education organization for underserved children, promoting its first-ever Art Beyond Borders: Painting with Olga Sinclair, Presented by Snap Inc. event in celebration of the Getty-led Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA (PST).

 

Art Beyond Borders will bring together 1,000 children from The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools for the city’s largest youth-oriented painting class led by lauded Panamanian Artist Olga Sinclair. Inner-City Arts will transform Kohler Street in Downtown’s Skid Row into a park-like venue for the children to paint. Each child will be given a canvas and a palette, allowing for individual exploration and self-expression as Sinclair leads them through an instructional session.

 

With only 35 out of over 700 schools in the district receiving a top rating in providing arts education to its students, I-CA’s state-of-the-art campus serves as a beacon of hope to the thousands of school children who would otherwise receive little to no arts education.

 

This event takes arts advocacy to the streets, literally, of downtown Los Angeles, bringing awareness to the needs of students in underserved communities. Studies have found that when a student learns an art form, it correlates with higher attendance, better test scores, and improved school graduation and college attendance rates.

 

As arts advocates ourselves, serving in various capacities around Los Angeles, we are passionate about bringing attention to the transformative work of IC-A and other organizations that level the playing field, providing access and equity to students in need.
