ArtWorks School Partnership Program

Santa Fe, New Mexico
Susan K Black Foundation is a major contributor to Artworks in the Santa Fe, New Mexico area. ArtWorks was founded by the Santa Fe Arts Commission which continues to support and contribute funding to the program. While Santa Fe is often thought of as a wealthy, art rich community, most of the students in the Santa Fe and surrounding Public Schools are underprivileged and underserved.

ArtWorks’ School Partnership Program helps to fund Student Visual Arts Workshops and field trips for those students. Teachers facilitate workshops where artistic content include live performance and museum exhibitions followed by classroom discussion and activities. The program has been expanded to include kindergarten through the 8th grade.
Teachers who participate with the program receive professional training in a development workshop in the summer or during the school year.
Workshops and Field Trips include:
•. Museum of Contemporary Native Arts
•. Visions and Visionaries
•. Museum of Contemporary Native Arts
•. Lloyd Kiva New Art
•. New Mexico Museum of Art
•. Southwestern Sampler
•. Georgia O’Keeffe Museum
•. O’Keeffe’s New Mexico
•. Museum of Indian Arts & Culture
Into the Future: Culture Power in Native American Art



The student art is displayed in the annual ArtWorks Works! Student Art Exhibit in downtown Santa Fe.
