They took Art 201, Drawing I at LOS ANGELES SOUTHWEST COLLEGE in spring 2024. Student reflections: “I enjoyed the class a lot this year and would definitely be interested in taking an art class next school year. We learned about different art techniques while having fun and being creative. Plus the supplies were given to us.” Pulse Arts was a 2023-24 recipient of a Nellie Leaman Taft Foundation grant that allowed us to pilot our Dual- Enrollment Studio Arts Program for Los Angeles K-12 students. We are proud to report that this funding supported about 40 students from 2 high schools and 2 middle schools. We will definitely be continuing and expanding this program in the 2024-25 school year.

Our Mission

Pulse Arts supports local, professional artists, educators and arts organizations in the design and implementation of programs that increase access to creative learning opportunities for under-served youth in California. We believe that ART is for ALL as a necessity and not an option. We intentionally seek out micro-communities and students that are least likely to have a vibrant, supported art practice and co-create the discipline that best encourages their growth.

We are committed to empowering young people with tools to address social issues, pursue creative careers and ignite community change through the arts. This does not just include integrated arts programs but also, arts internships/mentorships, dual-enrollment studio arts support, gifted/magnet arts identification support, art therapy and community/family engagement arts experiences.

We hold true that art intersects every facet of life and want to link the most vulnerable communities as early, as often and as close to home as possible.

Diversity Equity and Inclusion Statement

Pulse Arts openly embraces the rich tapestry of people that make California unique. With respect to racial, cultural and gender equity, and ensuring that we do not fall into the traps of agism, ableism, homophobia or transphobia, our hiring practices, policies and programming reflect the unique diversity of our state. We believe that equity means listening and responding to the specific needs of the people and communities we serve. The arts are a necessity, interwoven and affixed to every facet of life and culture. We strongly believe that the healing power of creativity should not be reserved for the privileged. Our team of professional creatives is committed to arts impact projects that promote social justice and address the needs of overlooked, underserved, and marginalized communities.

Testimonials
Durante los últimos 3 años que trabajé en Audubon Middle School, vi la pasión que tenía Pulse Art al traer sus programas de arte y maestros para enseñar a nuestros estudiantes. Escuchaba a los estudiantes decir: “Aprendo toneladas de cosas nuevas en la clase de arte”. La plataforma que Pulse Art les dio a los estudiantes la oportunidad de conectarse con sus habilidades artísticas fue realmente invaluable, y no había visto otros programas lograr eso en Audubon.

I absolutely love Pulse Arts programming. I’ve recommended them to provide Professional Development and integrated art programs. When their teachers come into the classroom everyone’s imagination and creativity runs wild. Students and teachers can express themselves in ways that feel comfortable and safe. The teaching artists are professional and patient and have taught me various techniques that I have utilized in not just my classes, but in other areas of my work. I will continue to recommend their programming to school sites.
