Art on Board


WE ARE BUILDING CREATIVE COMMUNITIES


By combining physical, artistic, and entrepreneurial creativity with active community engagement, Art on Board is building strong individuals that will, in turn, build even stronger communities.  

Action sports and the arts provide a phenomenal environment of community, creativity, belonging, friendship, and camaraderie.  Involvement in these activities teaches young artists and athletes lessons of persistence, healthy risk-taking, self-esteem, friendly competition, creative expression, and community building.  Art on Board has the goal of making these activities something that everybody is able to enjoy - especially those who normally would not have the chance.  We aim to promote a positive, inclusive, and entrepreneurial spirit that will benefit not only our nation's youth, but also their families and communities at large.

Originally conceived during an Entrepreneurial Leadership class at The University of Vermont, Art on Board has since blossomed into a New-York City-based community engagement organization focused on promoting positivity through the action sports and arts communities.

Active.

Physically & Mentally.  Whether on your board or on a canvas; in the city or in the wilderness - Art on Board promotes nonstop healthy activity.  As individuals become more active, they will naturally become more creative and more engaged within their communities. 

Creative.

The driving force behind Art on Board is a constant stream of artistic, athletic, and entrepreneurial creativity.  Something immediately evident to all who become engaged with our program.

ENGAGED.

It's not enough to simply be engaged as an artist and an athlete.  Art on Board is involved in our communities as well.  Volunteering over 400 hours in the past year alone, we promote community engagement as heavily as any other aspect of our program.

 Our goal is to build creative communities that promote positivity, entrepreneurship, and active engagement for all members.  We aim to turn current barriers to success, such as family income or access to programming, into grounds for inclusion.  And most importantly, we strive to promote an active, creative, engaged lifestyle through all we do.


By creating, promoting, and supporting events and programs that engage members from all reaches of our communities, Art on Board is able to build networks that provide new avenues for success.  Doing so introduces the creative leaders of tomorrow to new ways of thinking, communicating, interacting, and succeeding.  Art on Board's programs focus on aligning the next generation of burgeoning entrepreneurs with those who have already achieved success in their respective fields.  This interaction is invaluable experience for teaching students the possibilities for success are truly endless.

We operate at the intersection of action sports and the arts, and this unique positioning affords us an open-minded, creative, and generous network of friends and supporters who are ready to help make a difference.
