Arts For All offers accessible artistic opportunities to children in the New York City area who face socio-economic, physical, or emotional barriers to exploring the arts. Through Arts For All, professional artists work with youth organizations to build self-confidence, self-expression, teamwork, resilience, and creativity in children.

Our annual Book Fair at the Barnes & Noble in Tribeca (97 Warren St) is one of the largest fundraisers for our programs throughout the year. We have opportunities to gift wrap, flyer and support our children's events.

Description

Arts For All's Programs:

Artistic Residency Program:
Through our Artistic Residency Program, AFA’s professional artists teach music, theater, dance, visual art, poetry and film workshops to under-served children aged 4-19. AFA partners with public schools and community organizations lacking funding for arts programming. We work with the needs of our partnering organizations to provide arts programs for the length of time, age groups and artistic disciplines they request.

Literacy Through the Arts:
Literacy Through the Arts builds students’ reading, writing and verbal expression skills through a multi-arts curriculum in theater, literature, music, visual arts and dance. Through art, K-2 students develop critical and creative thinking and a vocabulary to express ideas, stories and emotions.

Artistic Exposure Program:
Artistic Exposure Program offers special extra-curricular opportunities for our students, such as our annual Day at the Met field trip to the Metropolitan Museum.

Audience Project:
The Audience Project brings a free professional theater production to thousands of under-served kids in the NYC area each fall. Previous productions include The Emperor’s New Clothes, Pinocchio!, and Pig Pen Theatre’s The Mountain Song.
