El Sol & One Jupiter The Lighthouse ArtCenter is happy to continue the collaborative efforts with El Sol, Jupiter’s Neighborhood Resource Center, in the spirit of One Jupiter (in memory of Onesimo Marcelino Lopez-Ramos). We are all connected and intertwined in our daily lives; we rely on each other for our community to thrive; we are weaving the common fabric of our lives here in this small town. The ArtCenter provides ongoing art classes (including art supplies) to El Sol weekly, thanks to generous donations from our supporting members.
B.L.A.S.T. We are happy to bring art and joy to the Banner Lake After School Time (B.L.A.S.T.) in Hobe Sound. Our youth instructors, Valerie Sun and Christie Ann Miller, provide arts programming to at-risk youth, where they would otherwise not have interactive exposure to multimedia arts.
ArtReach The Lighthouse ArtCenter’s outreach program, ArtReach, offers art instruction and materials to individuals who would otherwise not have the exposure to fine arts. We serve students with mental and physical disabilities, as well as those who are economically disadvantaged or elderly. Our accomplished faculty, Valerie Sun, Esther Gordon and Gary Antonio, utilize a comprehensive curriculum to address the specific needs of the students. We have the privilege of working with New Day Adult Care Center, El Sol Community Resource Center, Sandy Pines, Banner Lake, Head Start (Riviera Beach & Lake Worth locations), Jupiter Medical Center as well as numerous local schools and special needs programs (both offsite and onsite). The positive impact this program has had on the students is remarkable, and would not be possible without the continued support of our members, donors and grants.
Solidarity Fish As Florida faces devastating pollution to our waterways, we are fishing for artistic development and environmental change! Solidarity Fish, created by our curator, Janeen Mason, have become an icon of the clean water movement in Florida. They have been seen in the Everglades and at the White House, on the steps of the Capitol Building in Tallahassee, in most major media outlets in Florida, as well as the New York Times. We continue to raise awareness and inspire stewardship with this striking participatory art project. This summer, more than 300 children in our ArtCamp created solidarity fish revealing the potential we all have to TURN IT AROUND. For more information, visit SolidarityFish.com.
Think Local We are a proud member of Think Local Palm Beach County, often collaborating with locally owned, independent businesses.
