Loop It Up Savannah is a community art program that 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. Their motto is simple: Make Things & Be Nice. Their commitment to Savannah’s youth is strong; Loop It Up Savannah believes in meeting young people where they are and supporting them to be all they can be– in their artwork as well as other aspects of life. In April 2015 Loop It Up Savannah became an independent non-profit organization giving them a greater abilityto foster creative partnerships throughout Savannah.
Loop It Up Savannah’s programs include After-School Enrichment, Early Learning Center Creative Arts, School Residency Programs, Creative Arts in the Streets, Beloved Community Projects, Looping Literacy Together. They are also kicking off School-Wide STEAM Day at Gadsden Elementary tomorrow.
