Thanks to generous funding from the William Penn Foundation, ArtWell is launching our long anticipated 15 ­week HeartBeat music program! Building on 15 years of partnership with Marcy Francis and Jan Jeffries, ArtWell’s Percussion Artists-­in­-Residence, the program uses the power of West African and Afro-­Caribbean music and tradition as a vehicle to engage youth, while integrating ArtWell’s expertise in poetry for literacy-building and reflection.

  • We offer fee-for-service options for our workshops, which allow us to ensure a more immediate partnership. We also offer grant-funded workshops at no cost to groups and organizations when available. Paying at the higher end of the spectrum supports ArtWell's ability to provide arts-based programming for youth and to work with other groups/organizations at little to no cost. We are happy to work with your group/organization to figure out strategies to raise/leverage financial resources.
