All children deserve the chance to create. Every year, 42.000 learn through our music, dance, theater visual and digital arts programs, taught by our distinguished company of New York City artists.


We partner in under-resourced neighborhoods. Our 360-degree approach gives children and youth opportunities to create during school, with their families and in their communities.


We want all of New York City's children and youth to use their creativity to succeed in school, work and life. When children have the chance to create, we all benefit from a richer, more vibrant city.
