"This piece is supposed to convey the feeling of hopelessness. It shows how it feels to give up on yourself even when there’s still hope that you can confide in."
Arts Impact operates six professional development models, enabling preschool through middle school teachers to incorporate the arts into their students’ basic education through an intense two-year program that emphasizes hands-on learning through one-on-one artist/teacher mentorships. Each model has a specific focus, common goals and key features address the critical needs of teachers, students, and schools.
