Thank you and an update!

Thanks to everyone who continues to support Arts for All.  We could never serve as many in-need children without you!

Many wonderful Arts for All programs are off an running this year, and many more will be added this month.  One of the programs we are thrilled to be running again this semester is our Literacy The Arts Program - and it would not be possible with out your support!

The Literacy Through the Arts program is a 32 week program designed for grades K - 2, to better children's reading, writing and verbal expression through a multi-art curriculum.  Taught by wonderful teaching artists, Lena Moy-Borgen, Shawn Shafner and Robin Cannon, this program currently runs at PS15, an in-need public school on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.  This program is unique because of the use of differentiated instruction through various art skills to help increase literacy.  We also work very closely with the school teachers and staff, designing each lesson plan and ensuring we are incorporating activities that reinforce what the children are learning in their literacy classes. This is our 8th semester of this exciting program at PS15!  We are grateful to be able to sustain such a long-term relationship with this school, due to the generosity of so many individuals!  To learn about our other programs, visit our winter/spring 2011 calendar!  More will be added in the upcoming weeks!
