- Student, Age 12
Arts on Arlington is a freshly renovated 10,000-square-foot building home to McRae Art Studios, space for exhibitions, and ArtReach Orlando's Community Classroom. Through a partnership with McRae Art studios, our Artists in WonderCamp students have the opportunity to interact with professional artists and tour their studios. This partnership elevates the program and allows students to connect with professionals in the community. The arts are not only educational and a tool for self-expression, they create pathways for students’ futures. This partnership invites students to see a future in the arts.
McRae Art Studios, Central Florida’s largest artist collective, was founded by George and Marty Whipple in 1987 in Orlando to provide affordable studio space for fine artists. McRae artists work in painting, mixed media, sculpture, ceramics and photography. Their subjects include landscape, portraiture, still life, abstraction, fantasy and surrealism.
Throughout the year the group also hosts open houses where thousands of visitors and art collectors stroll through McRae’s studios, meet the artists and purchase art.
