The Sanctuary

The artistic after school program for teens (ages 11-18) focuses on building a consistent community for foster teens, a place for at-risk teens to get away from all the negative influences, and for all teens to learn and be mentored by professional artists, musicians, and makers.  Starting this January 2018, we will be opening up one afternoon a week to have a theme they can come and work together to create art that is bigger than just one person, one genre, or one medium could create alone.

After School at SKE

​On Mondays (Visual Arts) and Thursdays (Music) from 3-5p, we have been partnering with Great Schools Partnership to help with their after school program.  This program is meant to get elementary school students comfortable and interested in using art and music to be creative, express themselves, and work together to create something bigger than themselves.

House Shows

In order to highlight our musician and artist family members, we have started to do house shows where a quarter of the door cost goes to City of Refuge, Inc. and the rest goes to the musicians/artists.  This is a bit of a fundraiser, but also a way that families can get to know the mentors we have, give back to our mentors, and provide a family-friendly concert that isn’t just an all-ages show, but incorporates families into the show.

Parent/Artist Connection

Being a parent is not easy.  Like our slogan says, “It takes more than a village to raise a child,... it takes a city”.  Starting in January 2018, we will be offering a dinner once a month for parents to get together with our artist/musician/maker mentors to build a support system community, learning artistic coping skills for both kids and parents.
