  • “Thank you for the work you and the artists do at our schools. Our partnership with Marquis Studios and VSA is truly making a difference in the lives of our students and their families.”

    Barbara Joseph, Deputy Superintendent District 75
  • “As the parent of triplets with autism, every day that my girls learn something is a great victory for them and for me. The arts programming from Marquis Studios gives them the ability to express a side of themselves that has opened my eyes to see past their struggles-­‐to see what talented young girls they have become.”

    Parent, Public School 37
  • “Our students, who have autism and multiple disabilities, have benefited tremendously from the arts residencies. In addition to providing opportunities for self-expression and raising self-esteem, participation in the arts has increased their academic skills (e.g. attention to task, following directions, color, shape recognition) fine/gross motor skills and communication/social skills.”

    Principal, NYC Public School
  • “The architecture and design program was a great program that allowed the students to open up their mind and imagination to create designs that represent them. It was a judgment free place where the students were able to take risks, make mistakes and explore without the fear of consequences. They were able to enrich their vocabulary and use that vocabulary in their writing and oral explanations.”

    Teacher, PS 114
  • “This program has confirmed, again, that arts are crucial component to students’ development. Kids who struggle in academic areas get to shine in the arts, and see that persistence makes a difference…”

    Teacher, PS 170x
  • “You have built a real family of students, parents, Teaching Artists – and the art on display shows all the enthusiasm and appreciation you wish for in our young learners.”

    Bobye List, Executive Director, Kornfeld Foundation
  • “I love how Marquis Studios supports our curriculum.”

    Principal, PS 45R
  • “The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.”

    William Bennett, Former US Secretary of Education
