Review for Artreach, San Diego, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I teach first grade at a title one school. Most of my students are military depends with a parent deployed overseas and we do not have an art program at our school I wrote ArtReach and they got back to me immediately with personal attention and a promise to come and teach art to the 120 first graders at my school. Their program exceeded my expectations. A professional art teacher came and taught every first grader in my school. They provided all the materials and two aids to support the learning. The teacher was experienced in teaching elementary children ART. She didn't just do an art project with the children, she taught them how to look at art and the elements of art in a way that was understandable. They used real artist tools for the first time. After our first all day workshop, they received another grant, came back to our site, and provided another all day workshop. They truly LOVE children and want to provide them with experiences that would not normally have access to.
