Arts to Grow bridges the gap between arts education and shrinking school district budgets by providing Teaching Artists and research-based curriculum to produce future leaders and strengthen local communities at no cost to working families.
Arts to Grow launched its first three programs in September 2005. Since that time, our portfolio of program partners has grown to 17 programs in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Hoboken (NJ), and Newark (NJ). Since our inception, we’ve offered over 108 high quality programs and have served over 2,500 children. Students’ artistic talents are nurtured by ATG’s experienced Teaching Artists, a specific curriculum created for each class, and a 1:12 teaching artist to student ratio. Over 35 highly qualified teaching artists have worked with ATG to instill self-confidence and a love of learning in our students.
