Restore Arts Launches After School Arts Programs at A.M. Hamilton Elementary School in Phoenix
We are thrilled to have been selected as the Arts Integration organization for A.M. Hamilton Elementary School in Phoenix. Through this relationship, Restore Arts will bring a variety of after school Arts and Music programs to the students of Hamilton. The "spark" that ignited this amazing opportunity came from a 7th grade student, Brandon Gutierrez, who had a passion to create a "hip-hop" experience with an anti-bullying theme that he could share with his fellow classmates. His energy and the fuel provided by his outstanding principal, Nicole Shamblin, built the fire that we responded to. With the help of our partners, The Be Kind People Project and the Arizona Rhythm Connection, both the hip hop class and an introductory percussion class begin next week. The response from the students and the teachers has been outstanding and we at Restore Arts look forward to providing an amazing experience for the students and growing together as we nurture and enhance this wonderful relationship.
