A2O brings together youth and rising environmental artists at a local recreation facility to create permanent or temporary artwork that highlights the nearby green space. As a part of our Art Education Program, A2O artists lead participants in engaging, hands-on arts activities that incorporate the natural resources of the environment. Youth ages 10-14 attend twice weekly workshops at each recreation facility. The workshops are thematically related to or work towards the creation of a final site-specific project, which is housed at the facility. A2O provides a platform for emerging artists who want to create work that pushes beyond the traditional notion of muralism, while employing an environmental lens. A2O prides itself on cultivating a unique mix of artists whose work ranges from paper-making to photography, social practice to silk-screening, providing a rich experience to participants every session.
