Under the close guidance of a professional teaching artist, MYX’s Art 2 Change Workshops & Residencies incorporate service learning, character education and peace studies to help students explore diverse cultures, diverse viewpoints and common human interests through the lens of visual, audio, performing and literary arts. Uniquely all A2C Workshops & Residencies culminate in a collaborative art project, empowering students to make a change in their schools, their communities and beyond.
