Thanks to your generous contributions, Art Studio has educated, and empowered and healed at-risk youth in THREE local schools in addition to it's community location in the Little Haiti area of Miami, Florida. Through creative-holistic art forms such as painting, drawing, sculpture, theater, film, movement, mindful breathing, journaling, and more, our youth have learned about themselves, the environment, their community and each other.
Some highlights from the programs that YOU helped fund include:
Everything is Energy at Jesse J. McCrary Elementary School

Fun Fact: This spring, students in this program performed a play about overcoming adversity, featuring characters, costumes, and scenery they created after studying elements of the periodic table. Science + art = fun! Art integration at it's best!
