The Harwood Art Center

Harwood, the public outreach program of Escuela del Sol Montessori, is a creative center for community. Participating at a grassroots level, Harwood deploys the arts as a catalyst for personal empowerment, cultural enrichment and social change. We believe that equitable access to the arts and opportunities for creative expression are integral to inspired, passionate individuals and to healthy, vibrant communities. Our programs include arts education, engagement and community outreach initiatives for all ages, as well as resident studio, apprenticeship, teaching and professional development opportunities for artists. Events, workshops and classes take place in our main building at the corner of 7th & Mountain, at our 6th Street Studio, and at many varied locations around the neighborhood, city and state. Harwood’s work blooms from the seeds of our shared humanity. Art is a powerful means for holistic community engagement, and we wield it toward integration, visibility, empathy and unity. The arts imbue individuals and New Mexico with a unique sense of place, shared identity, cultural wealth, and vast potential for development. Across our efforts, we center communities who are marginalized by biases toward status, identity and location by shaping our programs with and for our broad and diverse community/ies.
