Founded on the belief that the arts play a vital role in fostering the creativity and self-confidence necessary to become a productive citizen, ArtSparks classrooms encourage children to develop discipline, a standard of excellence, and a belief in themselves that carries over into all aspects of their lives.
Through in-school partnerships, residencies, workshops, and public performances, ArtSparks is a non-profit organization that brings joyful dance and music programming to non-traditional arts participants and students with exceptionalities. Read more about what we do and why we do it:
"I was amazed at how well the instructors crafted their dance lessons, so that every minute was well planned and exciting for the children."
~ Ellen M Stahl, Cleveland Municiple Schools
"I'm thankful that I have great, kind teachers to teach me everything, and they don't move on unless everyone knows the steps."
~ Olivia, Lincoln Elementary student
"You have given our students the chance to learn a healthy lifestyle in a fun way. I hear them at recess singing and practicing the moves."
~ Mary Breiding, Akron Public Schools
