Art Resource Collaborative for Kids (ARCK)

ARCK empowers students to become innovators and creative thinkers by integrating art and design with literacy and STEM education. ARCK, a 501 c 3 nonprofit based in Boston, uses art as a vehicle to engage students in learning through the lens of social awareness. Our program, free to students, provides creative outlets that connect students’ academics with lessons based on ARCK’s three modules (Leadership, Civic Engagement, and Social Justice) and support students’ social-emotional skills learning.

This is Hestia’s first year funding ARCK. Hestia’s $23,000 grant will support the Art for Social Impact program at the Blackstone Innovation School.
