Review for Art Studio Inc, Miami, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

during this past summer, 2010, I worked as a volunteer summer program coordinator. I gathered teachers and scheduled classes and recruited local and non-local students. Together we created over eight weekly classes that lead to a student art show with the sculptures and paintings and a play that was performed at Fairchild Tropical Garden's annual Mango fest. The students developed relationships for each other and art. I feel the strengths of art studio were Rachael and Soralee who diligently work everyday to try and bring programs into the community. I feel Art Studio's location is vital for being successful this community. The only disappointment is the lack of funding for an organization who is actually serving children on a holistic level balancing art with daily life.

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

own career as a theater and film director. i've also grown to be a more patient loving caring teacher.

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

get rid all non-organic snacks and introduce fresh fruits and veggies for snacks. i would get rid of the throw away waterbottles and get kanteens for each student. i would also require parents to drop off kids or have to come once a week to be invovled.

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

the kids!

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

quailty teachers who strive to change the lives of kids through the arts

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

end systemic poverty!

Ways to make it better...

i had more expierence working with these types of kids.

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

lack of funding.

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

rachael and soralee rock!!!!

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
