How You Can Help

We believe all children should have creative, hands-on art experiences from professional, community-based artists. You can commit to helping us reach more children where they live, learn and play with meaningful arts experiences. Together, we can help children…

  • Experience: A strong case can be made for learning through firsthand arts experiences demonstrated by professional artists
  • Understand: Thought-provoking artist residencies, workshops, and performances evoke a deep understanding of the art form and its history and culture
  • Create: Creativity transforms the way young people think, expanding their thought process and deepening their engagement
  • Connect: Teaching artists skillfully connect arts learning to other areas of study, and to kids’ lives and world, demonstrating the importance of collaboration and community
