"An odyssey is about discovery. You coming here today is part of your odyssey. So what are you going to leave here with?" – Russell Goings, art collector

Art Collectors provides middle school students with an opportunity to explore, create and preserve the arts (music, dance, theater, poetry and visual art) in their classrooms and at New York City Cultural Organizations. In this program, students will discover the arts as a vehicle for self-expression; they will develop an understanding of the arts’ role in documenting history, and will learn about the integral role the arts play in the evolution of culture and society.

“You have engaged our students and encouraged them to allow their imaginations to run wild.” – Floyd Branch, Special Education Department Chair, Renaissance School of the Arts
