Art, Music, Movement, and Theatre for Students in Nassau Elementary Schools

Arts education presents the opportunity for children to find out who they are inside.  I think that the arts are wonderful because you can have so much fun while you are learning.

Dr. Jane Lindberg

Now more than ever students are under a great amount of pressure and stress. The Arts can play such a positive role in the lives of children. It offers a space for kids to think freely and creatively, building their self-esteem and instilling their individuality.

Kim Rust

World renowned drummer and clinician Les DeMerle has been teaching students of all ages. “It is such a rewarding experience to see the enthusiasm and willingness from these kids to learn. I am having a ball with my little drummers.”

Les DeMerle

Bernadette S. was a student of the mountain dulcimer for a year with Robyn Nemes, one of our wonderful instructors. Bernadette continued playing in the second year as a mentor to other children. Donors, including the local Baha’i community, came together so that our young musician could have her very own dulcimer, a beautiful instrument and a lovely gift!
