Art Studio Inc
September 24, 2010

Art Studio Miami is doing something amazing for a community in Miami. Little Haiti has a large population and a lot of poverty but not many resources. Many of the children there live below poverty and are never exposed to art or creative thinking. Additionally, the schools in this area do not have funding for music or art programs so the problem is compounded. Art Studio Miami uses art to teach these young people a different way of thinking. The artists / teachers / councilors use visual and performing arts to show these kids that they can create beautiful things. Art Studio Miami is an amazing charity that is an example of art therapy at it's most useful. I am very glad that I found this organization to give my time to.
