Scholarships and Financial Assistance
Recent studies have shown that students actively involved with arts learning noticeably improved their critical thinking capacities, interpersonal skills, general academic performance, and overall attitude towards school. Arts education has been shown to level the playing field across socio-economic boundaries, and to make a measurable, positive impact on at-risk youth.
These are powerful reasons to bring the arts to as many young people as possible. Unfortunately schools are offering less and less in the way of arts education, and many families in our area are not able to afford private instruction. To make it possible for everyone who wishes to take classes here to do so, 171 has established the Experience Art Fund, and we are accepting contributions in any amount. As little as $5 combined with lots of other $5ís will help us reach our goal of offering free classes to qualifying families.
