ART PROGRAMS

Art provides the window to the soul of our culture. Art communicates ideas, creates a sense of wonder, and explores the nature of perception. SLF encourages and provides broader access to the arts for all ages, especially those often overlooked. We believe creativity is as essential to the scientific process as it is to education and artistic processes

Mission: To connect youth and families to enriching experiences in the arts

DIRECT PROGRAM | LAUNCHED IN 2010

The Samuel Lawrence Foundation connects youth and their families with enriching experiences in the arts across music and dance. Annually, SLF partners with various performing arts groups to provide families and youth tickets to music and dance performances.

 

We believe this opportunity for students and their families to attend a classical symphony concert or ballet performance free of cost cultivates our collective community appreciation of the impact the arts have in society.
