Wingspan Arts' mission is to engage diverse groups, especially young audiences, with a wide range of performing, visual, media, and literary arts.
What We Do
Wingspan Arts provides arts education services to K-12 students in the New York City metro area. We accomplish this by developing professional artist-educators who are inspired by the work they do, and who have a unique gift for sharing their inspiration with students. Our ethnically-diverse teaching artists share their expertise and passion for the arts with young people, many of whom are from low-income neighborhoods and have had little or no previous training in the arts. Since our founding in 2001, thousands of children across the New York metro region have benefited from Wingspan Arts’ customized arts programs, which utilize a wide spectrum of disciplines to address a variety of developmental levels. Wingspan Arts’ core values are Community, Authenticity, Courage, Creativity, Commitment, and Reflection. Through our afterschool, in-school and summer programs, young people gain a better understanding of a complicated, changing world as they study, learn to perform, and express their feelings through the arts.
