CWDT’s ARTSWORK’s program envisions a country where everyone has access to—and takes part in— lifelong learning experiences in the arts, both in school and in the community. The ARTSWORK program is dedicated to ensuring that the next generation receives a well-rounded education and experience in the arts. ARTSWORK’s program teaches students innumerable lessons—practice makes perfect, that small differences can have large effects and collaboration leads to creativity. Our program also teaches children that there are several paths to take when approaching problems and that all problems can have more than one solution.
