After-School Creative Arts
Each year Loop It Up Savannah partners with Schools and Community Centers across the city to provide creative arts experiences to students during the afterschool window. Our after school programs are centered around a specific medium, theme or project. Students create artwork and participate in group projects that give them opportunities to express themselves in a safe space, develop a strong sense of self-respect as well as respect for their peers, while making beautiful artwork. We believe that the afterschool window is one of the most important times of day, our programs give students opportunity to apply what they know about the world around them in a relaxed and positive environment. Our class ratios are 10:1 or smaller, which insures that students receive 1:1 attention and feedback on their work as well as support when conflicts or challenges arise between peers.

Early Learning Center Creative Arts
We offer weekly classes in Early Learning classrooms throughout the city of Savannah. Some of these programs take place in community centers, others in pre-K classes within the public school system. Our goal in this program is to give young students exposure to a variety of art mediums, while supporting age-appropriate  fine motor, cognitive and social development. Participants in these programs work on both long and short-term projects as well as both independent and group pieces. Each child has an art portfolio, which is compiled throughout the workshop. We display the students work throughout the workshop and also host an art exhibit at the end, as we believe that art can play a very strong and positive role in a young child’s  developing sense of themself and understanding of themselves in the context of their community.
 
School Residency Programs
Our School Residency programs typically last 4-8 weeks, and provide a classroom with a specific art project which is connected to at least one of the academic subjects that they are currently studying. We work closely with classroom teachers to develop relevant and educationally beneficial projects for their classroom. Our goal is to use the arts to reinforce what the students are learning in other classes throughout the day. These projects give students opportunity to apply their knowledge and realize the real relevance of what they are learning in school. These residency programs always culminate with a public display, event or exhibit which is open to the school community and beyond, we often are able to coordinate with local festivals and community events for greater exposure. Art works created in our school residency programs are frequently installed in prominent locations inside the school.
 
Creative Arts In the Street
We bring art to the streets through community festivals and events as often as we can ---- through exhibits, children’s art workshops we are working to make art as universal and dependable an element in the urban life of savannah’s Children as possible. So frequently, we are made aware of the overwhelming violence, crime and poverty which occurs in our city. Our goal through all of our programs, and specifically Creative Arts In the Street, is to provide consistent, sustainable and believable elements in our student’s lives. There is a belief among the children in many Savannah neighborhoods that “sometimes you just get shot.” Our goal is to make it possible to believe that other things happen too--- and that many of them are different and better. When opportunities for art and positive self expression become as prominent and dependable as the gunshot outside of young people’s  windows, their perspective on the world shifts and improves.
 
Beloved Community Project
The Beloved Community Project is the social services branch of Loop It Up Savannah. Frequently, through our arts programming we get to know families very well and we become aware of basic needs that are not being met within the lives of our students. We consider it our responsibility to connect our families to as many resources as possible. The Beloved Community Project is our way of making the most of the relationships that we have build with both our families and our community partners to make sure that our students and their  families have enough food to eat, clothing to wear, power and water in there homes as well as access to health care, transportation and safe housing.
