Keep the Arts Alive!
Founded in 1989, Inner-City Arts offers opportunities for at-risk children from Los Angeles' public and private schools to build artistic self expression, enhancing their ability to perform both creatively and academically in challenging environments.
At Inner-City Arts, there is a direct connection between exploration, creativity and academic achievement. Children learn to communicate feelings and ideas in the universal language of art, and are empowered to apply the skills that they have learned to their regular academic programs. Most importantly, children are able to see themselves as valuable, worthy and capable of reaching goals.
Inner-City Arts believes that the arts are vital for personal and cultural development and they connect the individual to their community and to the larger world. Their philosophy is that by validating the creative impulses and uniqueness of each student, they provide a bridge between the artistic experience, and the development of the whole child and increased academic achievement.
