The Life Through Art Foundation is committed to funding educational opportunities in the arts for underprivileged students and artists who otherwise would not be able to finance such endeavors.
The arts encourage learning as a process of discovery that engages the whole child – body, mind, and heart. Research has shown that exposure and learning in the arts nurtures the development of cognitive, social, and personal competencies. In pursuing our goal to provide children and young artists with meaningful and beneficial educational experiences in the arts, the Life Through Art Foundation has developed programs that are meant to engage students on multiple levels. The first step in opening a child’s world to the arts is exposing them to the diversity of artistic mediums that exist. By sending children to museums, concerts, plays, and galleries, the Life Through Art Field Trip program provides public school children with opportunities to see, hear, and experience the arts first hand. Life Through Art Foundation has created a multi-tiered educational partnership program. The Innovation Program was created for teachers interested in exploring their own creativity in building bridges between the arts and other disciplines. The program teaches these educators how they can harness creative expression by establishing a safe, supportive environment where their students can create and learn more about art.
