ArtStudio has a powerful goal. The community needs that they try to address are worthy ones--the best even. They are well organized and they don't proceed with their goals without time well spent planning. They know what they want to do and they do a good job doing it.

I've served as a volunteer for almost two years now. I began having workshops at the studio location and for the fall semester that just passed I began an after school program at one of the local middle schools. From the beginning when I first stepped foot in Ar Studio, I knew I was going to really like the organization. There is something about the way that Rachel talks about the program that makes you realize just how important it is to her and how truly dedicated she is. I've seen first hand how important these programs are to these kids and it is a remarkable feat to try and make a difference in their lives.

I'm a local artist who have taught for Art Studio Miami in the past. My experience with the organization far exceed it's expectations for me and I'm sure for the participants as well. I have seen how the program transformed the students within just a short semester; they think differently, their behaviors change for the best, and they learn to become more creative individuals. Last year, for example, I taught a portfolio class at Edison Middle School in attempt to prepare some students to audition to enter DASH. Three students went for the audition and one of them was accepted, a success story the for both me and ASM.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would have more food. Healthier food... No sweets.

Art Studio is a wonderful organization. Everyone pulls together to help these children achieve their goals and give them the opportunity to have experiences that so many kids deserve. They are doing what we all should be doing and that is supporting those in need. To see their smiles and sense of achievement is an incredible experience... that I will never forget.

I LOVE Art Studio, the groups integrity and dedication are top quality. Even with all the struggles they have encountered navigating extreme poverty scenarios and finding consistent donors, this team of creatives, volunteer mentors, professionals, comes together to serve kids that are slipping through the cracks of poverty. The Miami location is serving in an impoverished community that has been rated the the most below the poverty line of the entire USA. http://bit.ly/1gfOjdm and the schools are suffering because of this. Art Studio's goal to bring LIFE ARTS to the schools and provide a foundation of personal and professional development to students is being implemented with their amazing ability to DO MORE WITH LESS. If you want to support ending poverty in the world this is a great organization to team up with. LOVE IT!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

GIVE THEM BILLIONS OF DOLLARS so their forward thinking integrative LIFE ARTS curriculums could be fully realized.

I volunteered at this site for a day and was amazed at the love and passion this group have toward their mission to help children in the community through the Arts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help studio gain funding to see their goal of a bigger space to help more children that are on waiting list.

I was a Volunteer Youth Mentor during the 2013 Summer Session at the Art Studio. I assisted the teachers in preparing art projects, chaperoning field trips, preparing meals/snacks, etc. But the most rewarding experience was being with the children one-on-one, learning their stories and offering support as best I could. The skilled teaching artists planned fun lessons for the kids, and it was inspiring to see them create some truly great pieces of art. I had such a great time that even after my car was totaled in a terrible accident, I still walked an hour round-trip in the blazing summer Miami heat to be with the kids for about 8-10 hours a week! The Art Studio Inc is the type of organization that you make a life-long commitment to. When you see how beneficial the work is, and the response the children have to it, you can't help but want to be involved!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expansion! I wish it was available to more kids in more areas.
