Arts for All

Arts For All offers accessible artistic opportunities to children in the New York City area who face socio-economic, physical, or emotional barriers to exploring the arts. Through Arts For All, professional artists work with youth organizations to build self-confidence, self-expression, teamwork, resilience, and creativity in children.

Arts For All is in full swing in our partner schools!

This Fall, Arts For All has programs currently running in nearly all five boroughs! In Manhattan, Literacy Through the Arts is a year-long program that works with students at PS 15 and Hamilton Heights in kindergarten through 2nd grade to build literacy skills through multi-arts curriculm. Students have learned the song "What a Wonderful World", created puppets for "Where the Wild Things Are" and made campaign posters for "Duck For President". In the Bronx at PS 163 and Brooklyn at Weeksville, students are building drama skills. The Visual Arts and Haiku poetry is back at PS 76 in Queens. The students were treated to a visit from Amy Losak, daughter of Haiku poet Sydell Rosenberg, whose poems have served as inspiration for the artwork in the residency.

Thank you once again for your continued support of our mission.This project is nearly funded, please visit the new link: https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/art-programs-in-need-new-york-children/ to continue to support Arts For All programs.

The 2016 - 2017 school year is underway!

Arts For All is thrilled to jump right into a new school year. Our Literacy Through the Arts program started at the end of September at PS 15 and Hamilton Heights. Students in kindergarten through 2nd grade at those schools will build reading, writing and verbal expression skills through a multi-arts curriculum in theater, literature, music, and visual arts.

Our Artistic Residency Programs are kicking off at PS 76 in Queens and PS 163 in the Bronx. At PS 76, a new set of students will participate in the Haiku and Visual Arts program in which students created colorful works inspired by works of Sydell Rosenberg (1919-1996).

Thank you for your support of Arts For All (AFA). It's summer now, but the 2015-2016 school year came to a close and another successful school year has goes in the books!

In June, two more Arts For All programs came to a close. Teaching Artist Franklyn Strachan led a film residency at the Green School in Brooklyn. Students got hands-on experience creating their own documentary. At PS 76, Teaching Artist Vidho Lorville worked with students to bring together Visual Arts and Haiku poetry. Students created colorful works inspired by works of Sydell Rosenberg (1919-1996).

Thank you once again for your continued support of our mission. Without your help, we would not be able to reach thousands of under-served New York City children with our accessible arts programs.
