Art Studio Inc
September 26, 2010

The Art Studio, Inc. in Miami, Fl. is an amazing organization. It has recruited countless children from low-income families into a program that has broadened their horizons. Weekly the children are exposed to numerous topics and are taught to combine these topics through art expression. The program collaborates with our school curriculum so as to supplement and support the educational goals of our school. The children absolutely LOVE the program and are more enthusiastic and eager to learn than I ever hoped for. The employees and volunteers are deeply committed, work tirelessly and care about the individual needs of each and every child. Through this wonderful program our students have taken a more active role in their education, have learned about subjects never before presented to them and are eager to take on new challenges as their confidence in themselves has increased dramatically. Our school and community is greatly enhanced through the hard work and dedication of The Art Studio, Inc.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Student attendance....students in this program want to come to school more knowing that they will be able to participate in the Art Studio....self-esteem...has risen greatly when students realize how much they can accomplish.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No changes are necessary...the only suggestion I have is to be able to make sure this program is funded sufficiently and in an ongoing manner so that more children can get this unique experience.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the smiles on the students who have participated in this program....it's contagious as now more and more children are asking to join

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic, hard-working, deeply caring and compassionate

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open the world to the millions of children who have never left their neighborhood, have no financial means to travel beyond their limited borders, have only lived with poverty and violence and who have no idea about the opportunities available to them

Ways to make it better...

The program had been allocated more money....even with the most dedicated workers, w/o sufficient funding, it is extremely difficult to do all the great things the program has planned

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Raising sufficient funds to expand the program so as to allow it to continue and be accessible to more children

One thing I'd also say is that...

Our children are blessed to have been the ones chosen to participate in this program...my heart goes out to all those who have not had this amazing opportunity
