The M.A.D. Arts project offers youth weekly after-school opportunities to explore Music, Art, and Drama. The project is grounded in a belief that the arts foster creativity and connection as well as enhance academics and social skills. The following goals form the foundation of the project:
- To provide innovative and enriching artistic experiences
- To create a learning environment that emphasizes self-expression and collaboration
- To offer accessible opportunities that celebrate diversity
The project is guided through a partnership between Prairie Music & Arts, the Sun Prairie Community Schools, and Boys and Girls Club of Dane County. These partnerships serve a vital role in spreading reach to youth who might otherwise not have access to after-school arts enrichment.
This project is being supported in part by grants from the Dane County Arts & Cultural Affairs, Green Bay Packer Foundation, and the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.
