Review for Multi-Arts, Inc., Hadley, MA, USA
Multi-Arts is giving children the education they are no longer getting in public schools. Given the budget cuts in the Fine Arts, music and physical education, public school children in the Pioneer Valley are no longer able to get excited about all the wonderful things an arts program can do to get them excited about learning. Multi-Arts is essential to our community and our children's future. It is teaching them to express themselves in many different and positive ways: with dance, fashion design, drama and the visual arts. My daughter usually doesn't like going to camp. She is six years old and gets homesick easily. But since the first day of this camp, she has not wanted to come home! She was suppose to do a half day program, but after getting teary that she didn't want to leave, we extended her time to the full day of activities. The staff is exceptional...all are artists and accomplished in their own rites. They are passionate about what they do and this gets conveyed to the children in all sorts of small ways. Learning becomes fun, creative, expressive and they figure out that this is what "school" is all about. I wish Multi-Arts could continue in this kind of education for the entire school year. I would take this over the remedial preparations they do to get our children ready for the MCAS!
This organization could use more money so that they could provide more scholarships to children who attend public school and parents who cannot afford the price tag. This is the kind of education that should be available to all children no matter their socio-economic status.
