Make Your MARC utilizes the public and cooperative arts to enrich the lives of its community members. Make Your MARC engages participants with mural based art projects to improve Rochester’s communities through group expression, team building, and positive work effort.
Our model focuses on piecing together all necessary components to the mural making process as a way to unite individual, community, and organization. Collaboration is key!
Make Your MARC aims to teach community-mindfulness, confidence, cooperation, and respect, with an emphasis on strengthening job and people skills, while participants work together to permanently install murals throughout the city.
The program all began after a transformative internship in NYC with a wonderful non-profit, Creative Arts Workshops for Kids, Inc. Their Mural Arts program inspired the creation of Make Your MARC for the city of Rochester.
