What exactly do we do?
Transform lives through the Arts.
We couldn't do it without YOU.
Throughout this 20th anniversary season, the SCA has taken art + creativity out into communities, meeting people where they are through…
Visiting Artist programming – K-12th grade students worked with weaver Rachel Hefferan and illustrator Molly Costello. Rachel and Molly shared their artforms and creative processes, and encouraged students to use their voices and creativity. Visiting Artist curriculum included literacy and Social Emotional Learning targets, and exposed young people to creative career paths.
Create Community: Spaces for Discovery installations – built by more than 225 adults and young people, these large-scale, interactive works went up on seven sites in Fennville, Douglas, Holland, and Saugatuck; making art more accessible to the residents and visitors in these communities.
Growing Young Artists programming – SCA Creative Fellow and horticulturist Scotty Jacobs worked with Paw Paw middle schoolers to design, build, and plant a school garden. Students read “The Seedfolks”, journaled and sketched, flexed their math and biology muscles, dug in the dirt, and named their new space “Wolf Point: A Place of Peace.”
We'll continue the crucial work of...
ACCESS FOR ALL
Amping up our cost-free Festivals – Jump Into Summer and A Bright Night – with the intention of having more families and individuals visit the SCA to experience music, dance, visual art, and more.
Using our new SCA Art Truck to get out to more schools, libraries, and community festivals with the goal of connecting people through the arts.
Continuing to provide at-risk and underserved K-12 students with creative experiences and exposure to career paths to which they wouldn’t otherwise have access.
