ArtWell supports young people through arts education and creative reflection to discover their strengths, face complex challenges, and awaken their dreams.

Since 2000, ArtWell programs have transformed the lives of more than 33,500 young people facing discrimination, poverty, violence, and the everyday challenges of growing up, in partnership with over 395 schools and community organizations. Through collaborations between local artists and young people, ArtWell fosters thriving, just and peaceful communities throughout the Philadelphia area.

ArtWell’s Professional Development workshops introduce educators and youth service providers to our unique approach, which combines creative expression and reflection to provide new tools for engaging young people, as well as a sense of replenishment, joy, and community for the professionals who participate.

Through hands-on arts activities, participants will experience how poetry, visual art and music encourage youth to become aware of their inner resilience, to have a greater respect for cultural diversity, build literacy skills and academic engagement, and to value their own voices, visions, and creative spirit.

Our goal is to support individuals and organizations in their needs as professionals who directly impact our youth and the future of our communities. We tailor our workshops to ensure that you are equipped with the specific skills and support you need to best serve your youth’s needs.

Team Building
Programs for Healing from Loss, Trauma and Secondary Trauma

Poetry for Literacy Building
Building Community and Sanctuary through the Arts
