Firehouse Art Center’s Art Attack program is designed especially for children living at Casa de la Esperanza, a residential community dedicated to helping agricultural workers and their families. During the school year, 4-12 students are involved in weekly classes that explore creativity, group acceptance, cooperation, project planning, and exposure to varied ways of art creating. The purpose of Art Attack is to provide a space to create outside the classroom setting, while still providing structure and access to instruction and feedback.
Covid 19 changes- Art Attack has continued over Summer 2020 virtually. Instructor, Mario Olvera, uses art as a vessel to foster self acceptance and respect among marginalized populations, Mario is an influential teacher in the Longmont and Boulder community. He is currently working on the greatest creation of his life, his kids. See his art here.
