ARTreach on the Green
This is a monthly ARTreach event in Katy that raises awareness for the importance of arts education and community service. ARTreach presentations at Central Green are underwritten by the Willow Fork Drainage District. ARTreach is training artists and volunteers to support outreach in underserved communities. The community is invited to stop by Central Green in Cinco Ranch LaCenterra Town Center the first Saturday of each month and learn more about ARTreach and discover ways you can help.
ARTreach on the Green features the Urgeworks Dancers on stage 11am-12noon, with visual and performing artists, demos and projects for families and children with special needs 11-1PM.

Because ART works!
ARTreach advocates for improved public arts funding and encourages legislation that will help make the arts accessible to neglected populations. ARTreach promotes the benefit the arts have on the education of children and adults to become creative, innovative thinkers, and problem solvers. As well as the impact the arts have on a broad range of community issues such as economic development, criminal justice, public safety, health and human services.
