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.

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.

I am relatively new to Arts Partners, but from what I have seen so far, I am thoroughly impressed. They have a great staff and group of supporters who are passionate about helping kids learn. What could be better than that?!
