I found out about Art Studio Miami about a year ago when I read an article in The Miami Herald. I went to the studio to determine if this could be a place where the Friends of Little River charitable organization could team to provide additional services to the children in the neighborhood. I found the amazing leadership and passion of Rachel and Soralee to be inspiring and I encouraged my organization to support their after school programming at the Jesse J McCrary Elementary School and work toward supporting other programs offered at ASM.

I have also taken my young children to programs offered at ASM. My 4, 7 and 8 year old loved the guided imagining session and the mask making lead by Ashley. They talked about it for weeks. It is truly amazing what the arts can inspire in all of us.
