Thank you for your support! Arts to Grow has ceased operating as of June 30, 2017.

Arts to Grow was a nonprofit arts education organization that partnered with New York City metro area public schools and community-based organizations to bring performing, visual and literary arts classes to inner-city students. From our inception in 2005 until our closing in 2017, we served over 3,000 students between the ages of 5 and 18. Our programs offered young people an in-depth, hands-on opportunity to work in small groups with a professional teaching artist. Children created original artwork during classes that met 1-2 hours per session for eight weeks to a year, during and after school, on weekends and through the summer. Arts to Grow’s programs were offered free to kids and took place right in their own neighborhoods.


Our Final Programs



  • This program helped me develop my projection and be comfortable while speaking publicly. It also opened up my mind and made me consider a career in the arts. Since I’m in my junior year I’m looking into different colleges that allow me to minor in the arts. I would have never been able to have all these advantages if it weren’t for
    Arts to Grow.

  • We have seen positive changes with her self-esteem and she has come out of her shell.

  • I was completely blown away by the performances. Thanks so much for your energy, knowledge and dedication to our children’s artistic lives. You change lives every day.
