What is community art?
Community art is any art form that focuses on involving community members through the process of art making. Community art often emphasizes the process of art making rather than the artistic result. It is an art form everyone can participate in, which is why often easily accessible mediums like collage and mixed-media are chosen. The strength of community art is that everyone is invited to share their unique voice and creativity to then be experienced by all. Setting aside the notion of appraising art for its commercial value or artistic skill, community art embraces the process of artists connecting with other artists through their art. The purpose is for all individual contributions to culminate in a large artistic composition recognizing that everyone is an artist and an important part of the whole.
