Review for Amario's Art Academy for the Gifted and Talented , Atlanta, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Amario's Art academy provide a caring and nurturing environment for students in Metropolitan Atlanta. The school is unique in that it provides tools used by students to find their gifts in the area of art. There is a demand for students to learn that integrity is above skills.

The academy is more than a place to draw. Students are taught the importance of giving back. They are taken to hospitals and other venues where they draw seniors, the ill and others in order to put a smile on their faces. The academy also plays a role in neighborhood beautification. Academy students create murals in schools, churches, street/outdoors, etc.

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

The academy has been instrumental in helping my son develop character. In doing so, I have had a caring and compassionate teenager.

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

Award a major grant.

Role:  Board Member & I volunteered at the academy for 3 years and ultimately sat on their Board. As a board member, I played a role in the planning and brainstorming on initiatives to improve services.
