TALLER PUERTORRIQUENO INC
February 26, 2010
Taller is an amazing organization and has had a transformative effect for the past thirty-five years on the culture of Philadelphia and on the Latino community. With a focus on Latino graphic arts, Taller has had an impact internationally, nationally and locally, involving everyone from renowned artists to young children in elementary school. Taller has also contributed artistically in literature, poetry and music, blending these with a focus on the graphic arts. The special focus of Taller on children from grade school through high school is especially important. Elementary and high school children participate in after-school programs that develop their artistic skills and also support their academic work. It is the goal of many of these children to further their learning at the college level by attending art institutes and colleges. There is no limit to what Taller could do to provide opportunities for young Latinos and others in the inner-city.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
observing the effect of Taller's after-school arts program on young children from the local schools.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the enthusiasm of so many children, artsits and community leaders in rallying behind the leadership of Taller in many different ways. The programs are rich, innovative and exciting.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
expand its operations through a new facility to serve many more talented and promising young artists.
