MARTA Highlights

Creating Pride and MARTA
 MARTA ARTS EDUCATION PROGRAM  


paintingIn 2008, MARTA began a number of community engagement initiatives centered on the theme of “This is MY MARTA,” to highlight what the transit system means to each of us in the community. 
 
As part of this initiative, MARTA has placed a strong emphasis on educational and outreach programs for young people in the community. These outreach programs are designed to teach students about transit use, transit careers and the important impact transit has in their communities, including how it contributes to sustainable living, economic growth and overall quality of life. 
 
MARTA also intends for these programs to build the next generation of transit riders and encourage students to consider careers in transit. 
 
MARTA is currently participating in two programs–the Art Education Program for elementary through high school students and the Future Cities Competition for middle school students.
 
MARTA’s Arts Education Program, with the non-profit organization Creating Pride, offers local students the opportunity to create transit themed artwork, which will be displayed at rail stations near their schools. Curriculum guides featuring transit concepts will also be utilized in their schools.
 
Students from six local elementary, middle and high school s created art pieces entitled, “My Destination: Where I Can Go on MARTA?” Click for additional information about the program and stations where artwork is displayed.
