Our Mission

Arts for Learning’s Lewis Arts Studio (LAS) is a creative haven for middle school students who have an interest in the visual arts. It is a place where talent and friendships flourish; where curiosity and commitment is required; where portfolios are developed, but more importantly, where essential life skills are nurtured and practiced.

Teamwork, communication, critical thinking, problem solving, and flexibility are skills that emerge as students become more sophisticated in their artistic craft and thinking.
