A Home for Bright Starts
33 School Art Center is not only the headquarters for Bright Starts director Michelle McCallum and assistant Chevon Jay, it's a studio, a workshop, an office, an exhibition.
Located in Federal Hill, 33 School Art Center provides kids and adults with art classes in photography, watercolors, ceramics, and painting and drawing. Classes run in the spring and the fall.
The school features local artists' exhibits and is heavily involved with community programs like summer workshops for kids, after school art programs, and specialized programs designed for Arts and Humanities Month and Black History Month. 33 School Art Center has even collaborated with the East Baltimore Latin Organization and conducted specialized kids art programs.
Local artists, who don't have a personal workspace, can lease rooms to work on their projects and pieces for up to three years.
School 33 Arts Center merged with the Mayor's Advisory Committee on Art and Culture, automatically affiliating themselves with the Bright Starts program, already supported by MACAC. The art director of MACAC thought Bright Starts would be best located within the 33 School Art Center.
