Review for Striding Lion Interarts Workshop NFP, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I fell in love with Striding Lion through my children's experience with them--their special way of teaching kids to express themselves through a variety of disciplines, music, drama, dance, but I have developed a personal attachment to the organization all my own, through seeing their performances. They are not teachers who also make their own art; they are artists who are gifted teachers. They believe in the exceptional results to be gleaned from drawing on a variety of art forms to make one beautifully constructed piece of work. They truly communicate to all of us that when it comes to conveying ideas, we don't have to choose. We can blend art forms to reach the strongest, most engaging possible expression of our ideas.

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

their work with my kids in school and summer camps

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

the way they have taught me that art forms are most exciting when brought together

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

incredibly articulate people who believe passionately in interdisciplinary work with one another and children

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

teach adults and children alike that we all have a multitude of ways of expressing ideas, if we can learn to tap them, and by combining ways of expressing ourselves, we can better understand we are are and the world we live in.
