Bronx River Art Center (BRAC) is a culturally diverse, multi-arts, non-profit organization that provides a forum for community, artists, and youth to transform creativity into vision. Our Education, Exhibitions, and Presenting Programs cultivate leadership in an urban environment and stewardship of our natural resource, the Bronx River. For the past 25 years, BRAC has maintained a commitment to providing quality visual arts and digital media instruction. As of Fall 2010, we began a 2-year renovation of our facility. During this time, BRAC will increase our integration into the community by taking our afterschool and Saturday classes into Bronx public schools and community-based organizations as part of our “BRAC on the Block” initiative. BRAC will maintain temporary headquarters and a Digital Media Lab in the West Farms Square area from where we will continue recruitment and registration as well as offer our Digital Media classes.
Arts Education Programming:
We offer youth programs after school and on Saturdays. The classes are taught by professional artists, and they include Painting, Drawing, Cartooning, Ceramics, and more. Please refer to our website (see above) for fees, fee waivers, and scholarships. We sometimes offer a free Teen Institute as well. Fee-based classes for adults are also available, as well as workshops for schools and community-based organizations, which can include in-school, afterschool, or Saturday programs.
