Academy in Motion
Academy in Motion is a mobile arts program that seeks to impact members of the Greater Lynchburg community by providing arts access to groups and individuals with barriers that would otherwise prevent exposure to the arts on our physical campus.
In partnership with other local nonprofit organizations and social service partners, art instruction can now be executed at community centers, senior living facilities, public spaces, detention centers, and community convenings through Academy in Motion.
The Academy in Motion program brings the following arts activities to off-site locations for arts outreach:
- Handbuilding Clay
- and More
