Art Studio Inc
November 19, 2013

I was a Volunteer Youth Mentor during the 2013 Summer Session at the Art Studio. I assisted the teachers in preparing art projects, chaperoning field trips, preparing meals/snacks, etc. But the most rewarding experience was being with the children one-on-one, learning their stories and offering support as best I could. The skilled teaching artists planned fun lessons for the kids, and it was inspiring to see them create some truly great pieces of art. I had such a great time that even after my car was totaled in a terrible accident, I still walked an hour round-trip in the blazing summer Miami heat to be with the kids for about 8-10 hours a week! The Art Studio Inc is the type of organization that you make a life-long commitment to. When you see how beneficial the work is, and the response the children have to it, you can't help but want to be involved!
