BENEFITING: The Art Experience Inc
The Art Experience uses art as an engine of economic recovery and increased opportunity.
Neighborhood schools face increasing cutbacks, and teachers are asked to do more with less. To balance their limited budgets, many districts have reduced or eliminated arts programming.
Yet the arts are essential for young students. In art class, children learn the essential skills that will help them compete in a global economy. They don’t just learn to draw or paint, they develop spatial reasoning, build empathy and learn creative problem solving. They need these skills for any career, including engineering, medicine, and entrepreneurship.
It’s why Einstein said “the greatest scientists are artists as well.”
Our Community Art Lab allows more schools to offer art in their classrooms without the expense of a full-time, dedicated space and staff. We provide all of the tools and materials at no cost to the schools.
This pop-up art studio began in Pontiac, MI. Now, we are ready to expand the Community Art Lab throughout Southeast Michigan. We need your help to empower and enrich the lives of more students through art education.
Your donations will fund the following for our Community Art Lab initiative:
- Art tools and supplies
- Stipends to cover the cost of art teachers
