Advent Home Learning Center, Calhoun, TN - "Spiritual Awakening" 30' x 11'



At the Emanuel Project we believe the arts can inspire at risk youth to turn their lives around and give them hope for living a productive life. Our focus is to provide a research based, high impact program in conjunction with ArtsBridge.  The Emanuel Project integrates creative and inspirational experiences through this incentive program.


The Emanuel Project is a visual arts program for at risk youth.  The project was initiated in response to the need to engage at risk youth between the ages of 12-21 in their curriculum, and to decrease behavioral incidents while increasing their self-esteem. The Emanuel Project takes a multi-dimensional approach to reaching at risk youth, through research based incentive programming.

“The Emanuel Project helps reshape the future of marginalized youth by discouraging the negative stigma that they carry and replacing it with positive visual imagery of hope that generates their spirit to better themselves.” Emanuel Martinez 


Our goal is to utilize the arts to promote excellence in the classroom and achieve an immediate positive impact on academic performance and behavior among students.


The Emanuel Project is privately funded and accepts contributions from donors, individual givers, foundations and businesses.
