Arts classes for poor children in New York City

United States 4 Contributors Launched January 17, 2018 Funding ends:30-12-2018

The challenge

For young children from poor families in Harlem and the Bronx, New York, education is commonly restricted to the basics.  Arts subjects such as crafts, art and music are not part of the curriculum, and for underprivileged families extra-curricular activities are unaffordable.

 

Yet, an education in the arts represents an unparalleled opportunity. For these vulnerable children – some of New York’s poorest – it is the perfect way to explore new horizons, stimulate their imagination and creativity, and also develop their self-esteem and interpersonal skills.

The solutions we’re proposing

Thanks to the Opera ‘n’ Art program pioneered by W4’s field project, Time In Children’s Art Initiative, many disadvantaged children in New York are accessing music and contemporary arts for the first time. For six months they are taken to discover art galleries and museums, and are even given their own studio where they have the chance to express themselves artistically with guidance from professional artists.

The impact of giving

Your contribution will enable a young child to flourish in a healthy and stimulating learning environment. By funding the purchase of art and music equipment you offer poor New York children the chance of an enriched education that will help develop their imaginations and enhance their personal abilities.

 

Help these children realize their full potential and build themselves a better future!
