About ArtWorks 945 Program

6223b9a1 4b50 445d b7b7 3f9d5a200632

The ArtWorks 945 program is built on a belief that the transformative power of art can be a vehicle for engaging and moving our homeless neighbors towards attaining permanent housing. Through various media we seek to restore voices and vitality to those who have so often been silenced and stifled.
ArtWorks 945 operates a functioning gallery and studio space where neighbors and volunteers participate in 150 classes a year. These classes teach life skills through painting, drawing, print making, photography, crafts and creative writing. In addition to classes, ArtWorks 945 offers 40 hours of open studio time each month.
Outreach to our neighbors is enhanced by connections and partnerships with the greater Charlotte community. Through offsite exhibits and events, ArtWorks is able to showcase the inherent talents of every individual, while inspiring conversation around the larger issue of homelessness.
