Art Everywhere provides workshops to individuals at local community and disability service centers. These workshops are often one time experiences for the youth or adults involved, but occasionally we get the chance to form a lasting partnership with another organization. Over the past 6 months, in partnership with Promise South Salt Lake, Art Access has provided 14 unique workshops to youth who are part of the Promise South Salt Lake Program. 

One of these workshops was featured in the March 2018 South Salt Lake On the Move newsletter.
