Arts for All is a wonderful organization. I helped get it started many years ago, and I saw how rewarding it was from the point of view of one of the organization's teaching artists. Then I began teaching high school, and an Arts for All artist came to my classroom to lead a workshop on Shakespeare. I was able to see from the point of view of the community served just how fantastic Arts for All's services are. I knew it was a great organization, but I didn't realize just how invaluable it truly was. What a treasure!!

I helped to found Arts for All and worked on the administrative end of things for while before moving out of New York. I was also a teacher at an economically disadvantaged school, and before leaving the city, a volunteer artist came into my classroom to lead a Shakespeare workshop with my ninth graders who were about to start reading "Romeo and Juliet." This allowed me to see Arts for All from the point of view of the communities it serves for the first time, and I saw in a new way what I had already known: that Arts for All is an invaluable organization for getting academic subjects across in a new, sometimes more accessible way, as well as a wonderful way to give children more confidence. This organization provides much-needed services to youth who would otherwise have to go without. It is a wonderful organization!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Cathedral High School's English 9 classroom in 2004 - Arts for All's teaching artist got my teenagers excited and interested in Shakespeare.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to expand it to more cities!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing children change, grow, and gain confidence.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic, professional, and engaging.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand outside of the New York area and bring its programs all over the country.

Ways to make it better...

the workshop could have gone on for a series of weeks - but there are only so many funds and lots of kids who need these programs.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

raising enough money to reach all of the in-need children in the New York area.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Arts for All's programs really do change everyone involved for the better. It is a fabulous organization!

As a volunteer for Arts for All for the past year, I've always been impressed with the organization's dedication to providing children without the resources to be involved with the arts with a great outlet of artistic opportunities. During events, the children always have a blast, as do the volunteers! Keep up the fantastic work, Arts for All!

Arts For All is an outstanding program. As a teacher in a public school, I worked with the Artists planning curriculum and implementing it in my classroom. This enhanced my students' learning in Literacy. We implemented drama, music, and movement to help the students enjoy literacy and they all ask when is the artist coming back? The director and artist always are helpful in adding to our school curriculum in creative ways! It is an enjoyable experience and very beneficial to my students' growth!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing, learning, and experiencing different ways to enhance my students' learning!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

grow and bring Arts related programs to more public schools that currently do not have any arts programs! Enhance student learning and encourage the arts in classrooms.

As principal of PS 15 our primary students have been actively engaged with the teaching artists of Arts for All. This is the fourth year we have participated. The teaching artists are excellent. They plan together with the teachers. Our focus has been literacy and the arts. The executive director is organized and truly reaches out to us to meet the needs of our students and programs. Arts for All in an integral participant in developing our overall scope and sequence in the arts.

Arts for All is a wonderful organization, started by young artists committed to bringing arts to underserved public school students in New York City. As the arts coordinator for a K-12 public school in Jackson Heights, Queens, I appreciate the willingness to work with us on every step of our partnership--they never come in with pre-conceived ideas and are always willing to create opportunities that work for our student population. We have never been disappointed with their participation.
