Give the Gift of Arts Education

Your charitable gift to The Center for Arts Education helps us reach more NYC public school students with innovative, creative arts education throughout the school year. $100 or more will make a big difference in bringing the power of visual and performing arts to school communities throughout NYC. Thank you for your support!
