Mission Statement

The Time In Children's Arts Initiative, is dedicated to overcoming the academic, social and emotional inequities of at-risk children in underserved, high-risk communities through a far- reaching, interdisciplinary, arts-inspired curriculum which focuses on opera and 20th + 21st century art through hands-on studio work and gallery/museum visits. Time In joyously engages the arts to ensure underserved children the tools and support they deserve to flourish, thrive & hope.

Description

Founded in 2006, The Time In Children's Arts Initiative, is transforming the lives and educations of some of New York City's youngest and most underserved public elementary school children through an intellectually and aesthetically invigorating arts immersion that integrates opera, art, museum visits, gallery hops, language and literature into the normal school day. Fusing artistic, intellectual and socialĀ­-emotional learning, Time In brings entire grades of children out of underserved classrooms and into the world of the contemporary arts every week, providing unprecedented access to the highest quality of artistic enrichment that New york City has to offer.

Regardless of their backgrounds, children are children: the world of imagination, creativity and fantasy is their most fertile ground. Time In acknowledges children's phenomenal gifts and innate abilities, ensuring innovative and substantive learning environments that stimulate, rather than stifle. Through its immersive arts intervention, Time In will continue to foster not only wonderfully conceptual thinkers, but perceptive and culturally sensitive individuals, each of whom will be poised to nourish our society in the days to come. Joyously engaging the arts to ensure underserved children the tools and support they deserve to flourish, thrive & hope .
