This is a a wonderful organization with a variety of ways to challenge young children creatively and introduce them to the arts. Music lessons, vocabulary lessons, and literature classes done weekly were a joy for the children. I loved working as a literature teacher in the program weekly for a summer. It was wonderful to talk with children about American and English Poets and discuss the history of the times the writer lived in. Children would then draw or write to reflect on the work of the poet. Thanks to Art for Life's Sake for such a beautiful opportunity to help children gain a better appreciation of literature!

seeting the children learn about poets and build literacy skills.

Friendly and committed to helping children.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Open a number of centers to teach music, literature, and art to at risk children. Weekly classes and summer camp could be expanded to assist more children to learn about the arts.
