ArtsBank, Inc. is a non-profit artist residency program in Randolph County, West Virginia. The program was originally formed in 1992 by a group of parents, teachers, administrators, and many volunteers.
The mission of ArtsBank is to expand and enrich the arts experiences in our public schools to cultivate artistically literate citizens.
The ArtsBank program assigns professional artists to residencies in the public schools. These teaching artists provide instruction in a variety of forms, including creating writing, performance art, and the visual arts.
ArtsBank’s vision is to provide experiential educational experiences that enable all students to think creatively, critically, and analytically. These skills are valuable for students to learn as they become adults and contributors to the workforce. ArtsBank does this through the use of hands-on art activities.
ArtsBank works in collaboration with the Randolph County School Board of Education, and rely on funding through grants, promotional events and donations. Please consider giving to ArtsBank. These gifts go a long way to improving the future of our students and our community.
