Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Arts Education, Education, Student Services

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 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.

Arts Partners has long provided matching funds to our schools. My classes over the years have benefited from the organization many ways. As a low income school the children would not have been able to participate in such quality programs if we didn't have some support from the organization. Children have been exposed to many opportunities to be in touch with talented artists from Arts Partners. Some years ago my class was able to have an artist come to class to share their skill before they were accepted into the program. I would reccommed Arts Partners to any organization!

This is a great organization that puts new emphasis on the arts in the lives of kids. Kansas became the only state in the nation to defund the arts in 2011, so a community organization that exists for the sole purpose of helping children develop their creativity and emotions through the arts in Kansas is a great organization.

I have worked with Arts Partners through our public school system for the past 14 years. They are a great organization with many artists to choose from who come out to schools and present a lesson related to their field or direct a workshop with students. Students learn so much about the arts and how they are integrated into real life. They also get opportunities to experience events and artists they would never get a chance to experience since most of our students come from low income families.
