Harwood Reaches Out
In 1991, Harwood Art Center was created as the community outreach program of Escuela del Sol Montessori. The school made its home in the heart of Albuquerque, in one of its most historic neighborhoods, between Old Town and Downtown. The area was also designated a “pocket of poverty." Understanding that art is vital for a healthy community, Harwood Art Center was designed to increase access to the arts and inspire a passion for life-long learning in our community.
Harwood has deep roots in our neighborhood. We partner with local community centers and offer free art workshops and public events with the goal of building strong relationships around the city.
