Sueña en colores

SEPTEMBER-2018: $620 PLEDGE

Art Start focuses on nurturing the voices, hearts, and minds of New Tork City’s underserved youth through creative workshops that take place inside some of the city’s loneliest places. These kids that are at-risk collaborate with local teaching artists and educators who donate their time and guidance to nurture the youth’s creativity and talents.

Their creative workshops are structured to support consistency, build resilience, and provide direction to kids that are going through a time of challenging transition. While encouraging personal development through art and music projects that focus on the outlet for expression, students are free to build trusting relationships with the teaching artist.  Also, they learn to open up and bond in ways not possible through the social service or traditional education model.
