Master Artist Stacie Krupa, brings her "ART PRIVE" Charity Events global to support the LIFE ARTS programs for youth in need at Art Studio World locations nationally. All of the proceeds support the sustainability of Art Studio's programs so schools/students currently on wait-lists can receive LIFE ARTS in their community. Funding of these programs allows consistent personal & professional development workshops for youth ages 8-18yrs to discover their full potential on a "cradle to career" path.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Youth growing up in poverty have been nationally studied from 8-18yrs, to be on what is called a 'cradle to prison' pathway that costs more than funding upfront the educational and preventative solutions to fix it. Our prison systems show 70% of inmates come from impoverished beginnings. The majority of the youth affected are from immigrant families, many struggling with language & cultural challenges. Art Studio's LIFE ARTS programs offer "CRADLE TO CAREER" solutions for professional success.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project raises funds to provide youth in need with consistent and free LIFE ARTS programs that provide project based learning and creative thinking tools for improved academics, behavior, social skills, career path, while developing an altruistic mindset of gratitude and giving forward. Art Studio's community locations are integral to the success of trust building within the communities of need and for having a workshop training space for the development of in-school after-school programs.
Potential Long Term Impact
The Mission of Art Studio's LIFE ARTS programming is to EMPOWER YOUNG MINDS w/ Creative-Holistic Art Integration tools. The Vision for doing this work for youth in need, is for the Healing of Systemic Poverty as the end goal. Our programs provide tools and skills that level the ground for at-risk youth to also succeed. LIFE ARTS programs are designed to halt the "cradle to prison" scenario (http://www.artstudiomiami.org/?p=604) and empower them with tools for "CRADLE TO CAREER" self-sufficiency.
