Artloop builds supportive new communities around arts education programs and their students’ incredible work. We help arts programs use their unique resources in innovative, sustainable ways that ensure continued growth and an uninterrupted focus on new art and artists. Artloop creates these opportunities through close partnerships with schools, communities, students and their families.
Right now, on this website, that means offering a wide variety of student art for sale from our three partner schools. All proceeds from the sale of art or related products (like shirts and bags!) are returned to the school where the art was created to bring about even more art in the future. All the art is given to Artloop voluntarily, with full permission from students, their families, and teachers. Many of these pieces would have been simply thrown away or lost otherwise — we provide a new option that helps everyone, not only with funding, but with increasing the visibility and showing the potential of student art.
Last summer, our first fundraising project (see right) followed a similar framework to raise over $1000 for our two partner schools, MS 88 in Brooklyn (Artloop art here) and I.C.E High School in Manhattan (Artloop art here). We even brightened the walls over at New Work City — any office/business looking for great art additions should contact us.
We’ve now welcomed the NYC Lab School (Artloop art here) to our group of partners and are gearing up for a busy summer of events, collaborations and, of course, online fun! And there are some great new projects and art works to be revealed soon. For now, enjoy viewing our current offerings here, and get in touch if you’d like more information or have any ideas!
