Community Art Partners!

Art Partners Studio is committed to building community through ART. We achieve this through classes, exhibitions, and collaborative art projects in our downtown art space and via an intentionally woven art network throughout the community.

This strategy allows us to reach a diverse, and often vulnerable, audience of neighbors who seek out art activities for their families and those who might not chose to cross the threshold of an art studio.

When setting up our programs, we are always sensitive to the needs and pressing priorities of greater Coatesville. The fees for our tuition-bearing classes are two-thirds that of other suburban centers and a generous scholarship fund means no one is ever turned away. Approximately 74% of the 1,760 residents who participate in Studio programs enjoy ART at no cost!

ART for Neighbors

The Studio provides programs for many neighbors in the community. Whenever possible, we charge a fee for this service or seek sponsorships to support our activities. The fee reimburses us for the artist, any art materials used, plus a fee for organizing and implementing the program.

If you would like the Studio to bring an art program to your organization, email with your contact information and an outline of the type of program you are considering. Please specify Community Art Partners as your subject.
