-Steve Carey, Third Grade Teacher
"I am always impressed with the high caliber artists that are brought to our students on such a limited budget. The traveling artists have enhanced and enriched the lives of all our school community."
-Greg Scott, Principal

-Longfellow Fourth Grade Teacher
"This is the funnest time I've ever had when we didn't have our regular teacher."
-Coffin Fourth Grade Student
"Arts are Elementary provided a much-needed balance of cultural engagement to complement my traditional education growing up in Maine. To my young mind, the organization's special programs seemed fully integrated into the curriculum and just as important as (and a lot more fun than) a history lesson or a math test. I've carried that value of the Arts as critical to a fulfilling life into my adult years as both an artist and Arts Administrator."
