Assisting Title I Schools to Experience the Arts

Adopt-A-School expands  the reach of its arts education field trips to more Title I students and schools across the state of Georgia. With an inaugural donation from the law firm Wilson, Brock and Irby, LLC, 350 students and their teachers, grades 3-5 at Fickett Elementary School in the City of Atlanta, were able to attend a one-hour performance at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. Per Larry Dingle, Partner, Wilson, Brock and Irby,  “We are so pleased to be able to bring the wonderful arts programs that ArtsBridge provides to the students of our Atlanta metropolitan area to Fickett Elementary. We hope that by kicking-off this important program we will inspire additional donors – both  corporations and individuals – to join us in giving more deserving students access to ArtsBridge performances.”  Help us meet our mission – that every student has access to arts experiences – and JOIN the list of sponsors below!

“When the students returned to the school they were still excited about their field trip to Cobb Energy Centre and seeing Schoolhouse Rock Live! Additionally, they were able to  connect what they are learning in school with the songs!  I am very appreciative to Wilson, Brock, and Irby for creating the "bridge" with ArtsBridge Foundation and making this positive arts educational experience possible for every 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade student at Fickett."

- Cheryl Twyman, Principal of Fickett Elementary School, 2015 (the first school to benefit from this program)
