ARTS FOR ALL
September 20, 2010
My favorite aspect of Arts for All is their programs instill a confident sense of self, imagination and exploration to children who might not ever be given a chance to explore these traits. Arts for All plays an important role to the futures of many, including the collective future for all of us.
I will never forget when I showed up at 'A Day at the Met' to give my tour. The lobby was buzzing with kids from all ages, quite a few in wheel chairs. The younger ones were excited while the teenagers, at first played, Too Cool for School. It was the most rewarding experience to see the teenagers transform from "I could care less" to "I couldn't care more!" By the end of the day they were fighting for my attention with each piece of art we walked by so they could tell me what they saw in art and how they related it to their own world.
It is these types of experiences Arts for All brings to in need cn a daily basis. I know I am not the same after that day and I suspect either are the kids who attended.

I've personally experienced the results in the classroom when I bring theater programs to them. I often have kids write their own stories/monolgues and then we work on having them bring life to their own words. They love being able to share their stories!
