Loop It Up Savannah is a community art program which was founded in 2008. It began as a children’s knitting and crochet class at the West Broad Street YMCA, and quickly grew to include a broad spectrum of art forms in weekly classes for children and adults throughout Savannah’s urban neighborhoods. Through programs and partnerships with schools, community centers, museums and local businesses, Loop It Up Savannah brings art and creativity to 5000 young people each year. Our motto is simple: Make Things & Be Nice. Our commitment to Savannah’s youth is strong; we believe in meeting them where they are and supporting them to be all they can be-- in their artwork as well as other aspect of life. In April, 2015 Loop It Up Savannah became an independent non-profit organization giving us a greater abilityto foster creative partnerships throughout Savannah.
