The Art & Soul program is an after school art program designed to serve under-privileged youth of the Lubbock community. Once a month, each group of students gets a chance to come to the Museum of Texas Tech University and experience art and culture. The children learn about a particular style of art and a particular artist to that style, then create a project based on what they learned.

The various artists studied in the program this past year included Michelangelo, Salvador Dalí, Frida Kahlo, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. The many projects completed by the Art & Soul children have included building a tile mosaic, “upside-down” painting, pop art with pastel crayons, surrealism paintings, and self-portraits.

The program serves over 75 children per month from four different after-school programs in Lubbock. The ages range from 5 years to teenagers. The program began in September of 2003 and is supported by grants from the Helen Jones Foundation, Inc.. The funds from these grants have made available for use by the program a new digital camera, a new LCD projector, and much needed art supplies
