REACH Art Studio

Based in REO Town, Lansing, REACH Art Studio is a nonprofit organization dedicated to mentoring at-risk youth, urban revitalization, and strengthening community. REACH fosters relationships among artists and community members through art classes, day camps, community art projects, and open studio hours.

In 2009, “Patterns of Place” connected RCAH faculty-artists and students with local children in an after-school program offered by REACH Studio Art Center. "Patterns of Place" participants explored their neighborhoods through painting, photography, printmaking, and poetry, and gave voice to the many assets—including history, ethnic diversity, language, landscapes, and architecture—that make the Lansing urban area unique.
