25 Reasons To Support IS183 because #artsmatter At IS183 we're investing in the future of arts education in Berkshire County and the creative lives of our kids. What started as a belief – that the activity of creating art distinguishes us from all other forms of life - has blossomed into Berkshire County's community art school ....a place that helps thousands of adults and children find their creative voices, enjoy an artistic outlet, make new work, and learn how to problem solve and collaborate in new ways. We are committed to helping the citizens of tomorrow – elementary, middle and high school kids who will become adults over the next 25 years - learn through the arts to better collaborate, think, and create. Reasons to support our next 25 years: Make an impact Share ideas Discover creative energy Take risks Experiment Make friends Define your aesthetic Solve problems Connect with different thinkers Build new neural pathways Make your own coffee mug Watch a child light up Try something new Design a statement piece Weld metal together Dip your hands in paint Tell your story Show your story Celebrate the tactile Slow down and explore Surprise yourself; surprise others Present your own show-and-tell Listen to a child describe their work of art See in all new ways Roll up your sleeves Throw pots Think inside out Pimp your walker Make an idea come to life Get dirty!
