With lessons in dance, theater, music, storytelling, creative writing, visual arts and more, Prism Arts seeks to create wider access to art and artists that might not otherwise be integrated into the classroom.

With inspiration from Rudine Sims Bishop’s Mirrors, Windows, and Sliding Glass Doors, and support from the Hugh J. Anderson Foundation we want all children to have the opportunity to learn and be inspired by educators who share their reflection and widen their minds to the vast opportunities available to them.
— Julie Strand, Arts Program Director
