Project ArtReach is dedicated to showcasing and encouraging young people to engage in the arts.  Music play’s such a big part of our lives, and we want to help children and young adults explore the possibilities.  Researchers have spent lots of time looking at the influence of music on young people, and have concluded that music contributes to the positive development and overall well-being of young people.  Music as well as other art forms can awaken their senses and make a child more aware of the surrounding material and spiritual world.  This has led us to develop our first two programs for children: the Kidz Art of Jazz and the Kidz Muzik Klinik.  

**Project ArtReach is a proud member of the American Music Therapy Association.

Kidz Art of Jazz

An integral part of the festival is the “Kidz Art of Jazz” sm.  This program features a variety of interactive, family fun activities with a jazz and art theme. Families can create art or crafts at Jazz Imagination stations, be involved with instrument making, or they can participate in a mosaic project with a musical theme. In addition to creating “take-away” art and crafts pieces (instruments, jewelry, t-shirts, etc.), the young artists have produced several permanent art pieces, which are currently on display at the Forest Park Senior Center and around the city of Forest Park.

Kidz Muzik Klinik

Kidz Muzik Klinik (pronounced - Kids Music Clinic) is a 6-8 week music instructional program. Young people ages 12-18 will be taught by professional musicians, weekly for one and a half hours, in a structured, supervised setting.

  • No previous musical experience is required
  • Don’t have an instrument? No problem!
A variety of musical instruments will be available for loan during the weekly sessions (depending on what instrument the student wants to play). If the student has their own instrument, please feel free to bring it with you. 

All that is required is a registration fee, at a very nominal cost of $75.00.
The Kidz Muzik Klinik launches each April. If you’re interested, contact Project ArtReach by December 1st.  Space is limited, so you’d better hurry and sign up your future muzik protégé!

*Upon completion of the 6-8 week program there will be a concert performance by the “kidz”.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­
