Education Programs

 

Education at RedLIne is a innovative and accessible program that engages the community in exploration of art along with providing a resource that nurtures the multifaceted relationships present between art, artists and the public.  Our vision is create sustainable and impactful programming that meets the needs of the community while developing learners that are invested in their education, their world and the transformative power of art.

EPIC Arts

RedLine’s Educational Partnership Initiative for the Creative (EPIC) Arts program provides a platform for RedLine Residents Artists to work in collaboration with educators from Denver area K-12 schools to implement an experiential curriculum that creates a body of artwork through a lens of contemporary social Justice.  EPIC Arts takes place Fall and Spring Semesters with a Youth Exhibition at the end of the semester in RedLine’s project space. 

Curator's Workshop 101 

The Curator’s Workshop is designed to familiarize participants with the various aspects involved in curating contemporary art.  The program is designed for the novice curator and geared towards an introduction to the practical skills needed for exhibition making and curatorial responsibilities. The first course culminates in each student’s production of a formal curatorial proposal. 

Reach Studio

Reach is a free, open and supportive arts studio space where artists in Denver’s “not exactly” homeless and in-transition community can come to express themselves creatively, be exposed to new art forms, collaborate with peers, learn new skills and challenge each other to take the next step- in their art and in their lives. Reach is held in the community studio from 1-4 pm every Tuesday, with drop-in days every 1st & 3rd Tuesday.

ArtCorps

ArtCorps' primary purpose is to stimulate change in neighborhood public schools by establishing strong connections between art, education, and the community. The program increases students’ opportunities for creative engagement in schools, allowing for a more rigorous and well-rounded education. Through the work of VISTA members, RedLine will be able to bolster the educational and extracurricular arts programs beginning at Whittier ECE-8, an underserved school in RedLine’s community of Five Points. 

RedLine Young Artists

RedLine Young Artists is a collaboration between RedLine and Rocky Mountain Parents as Teachers. Classes offer children (ages 3-5) and a caregiver the opportunity to explore the process of making contemporary art together in RedLine's Community Studio. Art projects are based on a social justice theme from a children's book and a selected art technique.
