EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S LETTER
Dear A.R.T.S. Friends –

Did you know that stress related to poverty, especially experienced at a young age, impacts development of key areas of the brain that are critical for academic success? Recent studies published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics and Nature Neuroscience found diminished brain development in young children from low income homes.

Curious to learn more? Click here to read Newsweek’s article “How  Poverty Affects the Brain.”

A.R.T.S. classes aspire to reduce stress for both mother and child through shared creative arts experiences. Additionally, our programming cultivates school readiness skills including following instructions, paying attention and developing basic motor skills which are some of the keys to academic success. And it all happens in a joyful, creative and healing environment.
