Art Studio Inc
March 12, 2011

My name is Algenelerro Frazier I work with United Cerebal Palsy and I had the previledge of visiting Art Studios with a friend of mine whom happen to be a volunteer. While I was there I was touched that inner city kids had a head start on having ideas that they otherwise wouldn't obtain in school like critical thinking and better social skills other than the ones they learn from their peers or families wich are generally wrong due to the lack of education. Florida is more geared for students to pass a f-cat test instead of basing the kids knowledge and potential with what they learn through out the year so teachers are stuck being a disiplinary figure instead of preparing them for a future in the real world. Art Studios is a vessel that gives these children a fresh and new way of thinking not limiting their thinking to what they see on tv or their surroundings which you can see on A&E's The Next 48 living here in Miami.

Ways to make it better...

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

Have more out reach so people are aware that the program is here and alive.
