Bringing the Joy of Art to Preschool Students
You are here
The MAXIMUS Foundation is proud to support the Fort Wayne Philharmonic ArtsKids Program, a fall 2012 grant recipient. The Fort Wayne Philharmonic has served northeast Indiana for 69 years and works “to inspire a lifelong love of classical music through performance and education.” The ArtsKids program provides daily, hands-on arts education to 1,200 preschool students, most of whom are underserved and at-risk. By integrating the art curriculum into daily activities, the ArtsKids program offers children early developmental benefits through opportunities to create music with a multitude of age-appropriate instruments, as well as in-class music, ballet, theater and visual arts performances. The MAXIMUS Foundation’s support was used for a full orchestra concert for the children at the end of the school year.
