We are dedicated to bringing the highest quality in-person and virtual arts education to the neighborhoods we serve. That’s why we partner with local organizations to expand our reach beyond Settlement’s walls and enrich our offerings in the community.

Community Partnerships

Our goal is to create the program that best supports your goals and vision. Ensuring expertly tailored in-person and/or virtual programs for our partners, Settlement’s administrators are adept and experienced at assessing our partners’ needs and then designing programs in collaboration with key organizational stakeholders.
