The National Endowment for the Arts is an independent federal agency that funds, promotes, and strengthens the creative capacity of our communities by providing all Americans with diverse opportunities for arts participation. As a long-time partner for manufacturers, suppliers and MRO operations, we know the requirements of the aviation and aerospace industry and take responsibility for the implementation of complete processes in manufacturing & engineering, production services, quality management and supply chain management.
ARTS is helping me to achieve my goals and dreams of being successful as an artist by opening doorways, windows and pathways, making it easy for everything to come together in amazing ways. With the kind of schedule I’ll be trying to keep in 2015, there’s no way I’ll be showered up & halfway out the door at 6:30am, so classes will start at 8am SHARP and go until 9:30-ish.
In many disadvantaged urban areas, children and teens lack access to the kinds of rich and ongoing experiences with the arts that are available to young people from higher income communities, both in school and outside of the classroom. Many of these models are based on new findings in brain research and cognitive development, and they embrace a variety of approaches: using the arts as a learning tool (for example, musical notes to teach fractions); incorporating arts into other core classes (writing and performing a play about, say, slavery); creating a school environment rich in arts and culture (Mozart in the hallways every day) and hands-on arts instruction.
Others come with specific academic or professional interests: using the arts as therapy for Alzheimer’s patients, arts integration, the design of after-school arts programs, the use of the arts with incarcerated populations, or promoting intercultural understanding through the arts.
