My experience with Arts for All has been a wonderfully enriching endeavor. The passion and energy that this group of people brings to the table is astounding. All volunteers are treated with respect, kindness and gratitude. Most of the people involved with Arts for All are volunteers, so to have that kind of positive energy from people squeezing this into their busy NYC lives is truly unique. I also greatly respect the work that is being done by the organization. Since I've taught some of the workshops in the schools and centers that Arts for All services, I've seen first hand the positive effects of bringing arts programming to these locations. The kids are always excited to see us and anxious to get to do something different and fun. Giving the kids something to look forward to that's fun and exciting as well as informative is very important. Hearing it from a different source that their regular teachers might also bring an additional perspective to their learning day. I'm extremely proud to be a part of Arts for All and hope that they continue to grow!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
public schools around the city, the Brooklyn Hospital, and the Children's Village.
