Our mission is to connect the creative energy of the Las Vegas arts community with students in the Clark County School District in order to enrich their educational experience in the arts.
Artists 4 Kidz will provide students with arts experiences, expose them to community artists, and inspire them to find their voice and express themselves while fostering a lifelong engagement in the arts.
Studies* show that young people who participate in the arts are:
- More likely to be recognized for academic achievement
- More likely to be elected to class office within their schools
- More likely to participate in a math and science fair
- More likely to win an award for school attendance
Now, more than ever, the schools need your support. The Artists 4 Kidz initiative connects the nearly 309,000 students in the Clark County School District, specifically those who do not have significant exposure to the arts, to entertainers and community arts leaders from Las Vegas and around the world.
