The Art Center
DreamYard collaborates with Bronx youth, families and schools to build pathways to equity and opportunity through the arts.
The Art Center offers nationally-recognized programming across different art forms that include theatre, poetry, dance, visual arts, photography, video, music and audio production, fashion design, and Maker projects. At the Art Center, 5-21 year olds access the arts, leadership development opportunities, and academic and social supports such as college preparation, social work services, and artist mentorship. Programs run after school and on weekends from October to May, with summer intensives in July.
Based on the core values of Empower, Create and Connect, the DreamYard Art Center Programs work to build the next generation of artists and activists through artistic rigor, academic enrichment, and a commitment to social justice. We also host Open Studio hours several afternoons a week, where students use our resources and staff to work on independent projects and continue to hone in newly developed tech and art skills. The Art Center Programs include: the A.C.T.I.O.N. Project, arts and community activism; the Bronx Acting Ensemble (BAE), theater and playwriting; the Bronx Art Collective (BAC), visual art and curating; and the Bronx Poetry Project (BPP), poetry performance and writing; Rhyme Factory, hip-hop culture and performance, and a series of digital learning programs.
