An Inspiring Art Program

How do we know that we have built an inspiring program? There are numerous indicators, but let us point to three areas that allow us to share some tangible insight.

Number one, we are building a team of great people with a personal passion to change arts education. Our innovative concept has allowed us to attract some of the most talented artist educators and they all tell us that working at One River is the most fun job they have ever had. They are inspired by our unique approach and the incredible results that our students are demonstrating. And the good news is that there are thousands of artist educators across America looking for a new and different career path.

Our second point of reference is about our “results”. These results show up in many ways: artistic outcomes, improved self-esteem, friendships, personal growth and much more. Depending on what a student wants from us, we can be looked at as a fun place to take a cool class or an experience with life-altering benefits. Most often we are both and we take each outcome as seriously as possible. For the student looking for a fun place to learn and meet people, we are spot on. For the student who is super serious about creative growth, we are inspired to make a difference.

The last point that speaks to our inspiration is the impact we are having on our community. Lets’ face it there is a dramatic cultural void creeping into our society. Visual arts and creativity are often under-emphasized but we are changing this first hand! One River School has touched the lives of many thousands of students and their families though our innovative experience and this is helping to improve the quality of life near our homes.

Life is about more than playing sports. It is about experiences that mold your brain, your heart and your soul and our families, our students, our teachers and our staff have connected in a way that has created a beautiful community.
