Professional Artist Series
After nearly three years, Free Arts reconnected with Children First Leadership Academy (CFLA) in Phoenix and completed a successful Professional Artist Series with the students.
Our 2022 Spring Professional Artist Series season includes a special series where children work with and learn from a professional muralist to transform a wall at their site into a mural.
Mario Barela has been a dedicated Professional Teaching Artist for Free Arts since 2008. He has contributed both his time and talent to reach the children of Free Arts partner agencies, even in a time of social distancing and mask mandates.  
As Free Arts eased back into in-person programming, this year’s Storybook Ballet was reimagined with the health and safety of participating children top of mind.
With the arrival of COVID, words like “unprecedented” and “pivoting” and “lock down” became common language to all of us.  Free Arts was no exception.
For the past month, just as the Free Arts staff begins to clock out for the night on Wednesday evenings, the building is rejuvenated with hope, creativity, and excitement.
