Community outreach has been central to Taller’s mission since its founding. Under the umbrella of our Visítenos (Visit Us) Outreach Program, we offer a range of arts-based programming for children, youth, adults, and seniors that foster an appreciation for art, cultural diversity, and promotes mutual understanding and respect. Our programs take place in our El Corazón Cultural Center, at community centers and schools across the greater Philadelphia region, and in collaboration with partnering organizations such as the Museum of Art and others.
Taller’s Art Education Programs for Children and Youth promote cultural understanding and community engagement through a focus on Puerto Rican/Latino art, history, and culture. We offer after-school programs during the school year, as well as a summer camp.
Our young artists engage with the important issues that shape their lives and their communities through creative expression and art-making under the guidance of experienced teaching artists and educators. We help kids succeed in school and in life, teaching them important lessons about resilience, responsibility, and mutual respect.
