Mission: There is growing recognition that children who learn to think creatively, problem solve, and work as a team have a greater chance of future success. In the 21st century, many argue that the new basic skill for global competitiveness and individual fulfillment will be creativity. Research has shown that using the arts for learning provides the best way to encourage higher level critical thinking by taking what students hear, see and/or read, and using music, dance, visual art, drama, film making or other arts disciplines to create new learning. Arts Partners' artists bring the "leveraged learning" process to reading, writing, math, science, social studies: all the core subject areas. This "leveraged learning" effect is even more profound in "at-risk" students. Because we believe that creative minds make communities better, Arts Partners is dedicated to providing opportunities for all students from early childhood through high school to learn in the arts and through the arts.

Arts Partners in Wichita has gathered together an outstanding group of professional artists that make magic happen in area schools. Whether it is through an unforgettable story, an original or tailored song, a scientific project artfully created, an art project that becomes a permanent installation for a school, or a stage production that artists facilitate with student performers, the results are outstanding. Through this program, professional artists enhance the exemplary work that dedicated teachers are already doing in a way that would not likely happen without them.

I was fortunate to be on the founding board of Arts Partners and have truly loved the experience and challenge starting a new non-profit. Over the years, so many students have been able to learn a different way from "normal". I only wish Arts Partners had been around when I was in school. I truly needed the kind of learning that is offered through Arts Partners. Wichita is so lucky to have a chapter in our community and we're so, so lucky to have such fabulous leaders that make this organization so important.

Arts Partners has enabled our students to work with a variety of professional artists to produce high quality work. The students have also been able to attend many performances and exhibits throughout the city. Our staff has learned a great deal from the artists, as well, and as a result, are more comfortable integrating the arts into their lessons.

Since becoming involved with Arts Partners Inc through the role of a Board Member, my eyes have been opened to the wonderful and life-changing ways they have touched the lives of children in our community. Many Non-Profits have excellent philosophies and purposes, but most fall short while trying to execute those. Arts Partners truly executes their mission with precision and develops programs that introduce students to the literary, visual, and performing arts; while reinforcing learning in other areas of the curriculum, such as reading, writing, math, social studies, and science. Arts Parters ignites the full creative potential of those students by integrating the arts into early childhood and continuing through high-school. I am thankful and blessed to have the opportunity to participate and contribute to such a worthy organization.

Arts Partners has helped schools attend our Young People's Concerts for many years. This is a wonderful opportunity for the students to be introduced to a symphony orchestra. I've enjoyed watching the children exit the concert with a great big smile and watch for their notes they send to us!

I have done several wonderful projects with arts partners. They give my students the opportunity to work with materials and topics they can't in school, and make large projects I don't have the resources for. Wonderful organization! I highly recommend.
