“I worked with a kindergartener who had a lot of tantrums: crying, crawling on the floor, anger, shutting down. One day there were few students in the class and we had the chance to work one on one for a while; She was like a different kid. We painted together (collaboratively, and then separately side by side). She mixed colors, had control over her environment, and enjoyed the session. She asked for more paper and paint so she could keep going, which of course I obliged. She was proud of her new colors and the visual story she created, and wanted to show others. This student was happy when the other children and staff gave her attention and praise.”

BSMA Visual Arts Instructor

"I just wanted to share a text message from one of my parents today... 'I just had to say... she's AMAZING!!!!" (about BSMA’s Instructor) "Please tell her for me, THANK YOU! Terrell loves music and I can see he's gonna love her' I always appreciate when parents send me something positive and wanted to share the feedback with you. Today was great! I look forward to the rest of our classes."

Kindergarten Teacher, CMSD’s A. B. Hart Elementary School

Kindergartener from Afghanistan: “She was initially reluctant to share her art as English was not her first language. As the week went on, she thrived in doing the art and said how much she loved it. By the end of the week, she was willing to stand in front of the class and talk about her project with confidence.”

As conveyed by another Instructor for CMSD’s Summer Learning Experience

Kindergartener at CMSD’s Clark School who was afraid to make a flower: Student: “I don’t know how.” Instructor: “It’s ok, maybe you could start with a round shape like this…” Student: “But what if I do it wrong?” Instructor: “You’re the artist, you can choose how you make it and if you don’t like how it turns out, you can keep changing it.” Student: “So, there’s no rules in art?” Another student listening: “No, because art comes from the heart.”
