our studios

CultureWorks is dedicated to making culturally relevant, transformative art and design experiences available to youth from all backgrounds. We provide a nurturing environment where professional teaching artists and designers work with middle and high school students to inspire curiosity, develop talent, and build 21st century skills.

Because we know that arts level the playing field across socio-economic and cultural boundaries, we are committed to making excellent art experiences accessible to individuals from all backgrounds. Learn more about how we've made access to the arts accessible for all.

CultureWorks provides an opportunity to new friends while learning 21st century art and design skills. In addition to working with art and design professionals and inventive friends, you’ll also visit local creative businesses and galleries.

Transportation

We have limited transportation available during the school year from Holland Public and West Ottawa schools to our site. For an additional $20 transportation fee per semester, rides back home after classes are available to students living within a 5 mile radius of our site within the West Ottawa and Holland Public School districts.


Program Cost

We simply ask that you pay the amount your family can offer. The full cost of each studio is $150. Some families give above the full cost to contribute to scholarships, while some receive full or partial scholarship. CultureWorks enthusiastically welcomes all youth to participate. We are thankful for generous supporters who make this possible. Payments can be made in person, mailed, or through online registration.
