Learn & Play \\ Community Outreach


ArtLink, PEM’s community partnership program, is a fully subsidized out-of-school learning program for children and youth in grades K-12

Partnering with North Shore out-of-school program providers, ArtLink offers a series of exhibition explorations paired with creative responses. These out-of-school learning experiences typically last 90 minutes and are offered Tuesdays through Fridays. Visit content focuses on themes developed in partnership with PEM's Connected Learning Developer and the community organization prior to the start of the school year. ArtLink boasts a growing list of community partners, including Boys and Girls Club of Greater Salem, Girls Inc. of Lynn, Express Yourself, RAW Art Works, Salem YMCA, Phoenix School, New Liberty Innovation School, Pequot Highlands Housing Community, and LEAP for Education.

If you are interested in partnering with us or have questions, contact youthprograms@pem.org for more information.
