WILL YOU JOIN THE CHALLENGE?
This year we're raising money for the Monmouth Arts Education Challenge, and your contribution will make an impact!
In Monmouth County, 62% of public high school students do not have access to all four arts disciplines, as mandated by the NJ Department of Education.* Our goal is to give access to 100% of students within the next 10 years, because as you know, the arts are essential to a well-rounded education, bringing classrooms to life and fostering creativity and passion. Arts education has long been shown to improve social-emotional and academic outcomes among the youth who participate. Unfortunately, Monmouth County students are not receiving enough arts education.
As the leading nonprofit arts agency in Monmouth County, Monmouth Arts addresses this inequity through wide-ranging arts education programming. We engage thousands of students in unique arts programs like the Monmouth Arts Teen Arts Festival and Arts Education Awards. Our comprehensive youth arts program, Signs of Hope, provides visual and performing arts instruction, activities and projects for children in economically disadvantaged neighborhoods. Student exhibitions at the ArtSpace 105 gallery space hosts art exhibitions, performances, and receptions for student artists to showcase their work.
Please participate in The Arts Education Challenge to help expand upon our existing arts education initiatives and create new programming. Whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps.
