ArtsConnect shares the philosophy that where arts flourish, communities prosper and lives are enriched.

You know us for our signature events, summer camps with an underlying "give back" theme, and creative classes for all ages. But did you know that ArtsConnect also offers programming scholarships for children with limited financial means? Did you know that ArtsConnect works with our local public schools to lift students esteem with opportunities to perform or show their art in public spaces? Did you also know that ArtsConnect offers several free senior programs, providing daily interaction which is so important in keeping a high quality of life.

In the coming months, ArtsConnect will be out in the community as renovations to the Springfield Township Community Arts Center begin. While the facility will close temporarily, we will be working hard - bringing our instructors to you in unexpected places with pop-up art stops. We call this ArtsConnect Off Winton! When we re-open, we will be excited to share a whole new lineup of programming - in a modern and welcoming space!

This year, we are asking for your support during Giving Tuesday. Your donation, in any amount, will be designated to help ArtsConnect with supplying new tools and equipment to the Arts Center. These items will be used for years to come - making your investment a lasting impact. Here is what we would like to purchase before re-opening in June.
