Bo Bartlett Center Outreach Programs

The Bartlett Center has launched two highly successful community outreach programs featuring Bo Bartlett and local artist members of The Bartlett Center's Board of Advisors.

Art Makes You Smart! is a Partners in Education Program in collaboration with the Muscogee County School District. This program began in late spring as a pilot project, reaching 150 second graders at River Road and South Columbus Elementary Schools. The program will start up again in the fall with expanded programs available to all age groups in additional schools.

Home is Where the Art Is, a collaboration with the Chattahoochee Valley Jail Ministries and Safe-House at Rose Hill United Methodist Church, provides weekly art experiences for the homeless community. The program is modeled after a similar one operated by Mississippi artist Stacy Underwood, a member of The Bartlett Center's National Board of Advisors.
