Cognizart at a Glance
Cognizart is an arts education organization that delivers quality arts programs to nearly 300 children yearly. As mindful stewards of generous tax-deductible gifts, $.89 of every dollar we receive directly supports programs.
Over our 30-year history, thousands of children have participated in programming as we have championed our core mission: arts education serves a vital role in social inclusion and is the great equalizer in bridging socioeconomic gaps. Our teaching for creativity programs ignite children's natural creativity, well-being, and self-confidence. As such, we have focused our efforts on delivering scholarships and free artistic opportunities to children from underserved communities.
In 2023, 42 children from underserved communities received scholarships to attend 360 Arts Camp – representing 30% of all campers. Each 360 Arts Camp scholarship represents an investment of $350 per student weekly. An additional 22 children between the ages of 13 and 18 served as Counselors. We made unseen opportunities in the arts accessible through our Arts Backstage program for 21 children participating in Faithful Friends’ mentorship program.
Children of all artistic abilities can grow as artists through Cognizart programs. We fan this flame through the Young Artists Debut!, where 23 children auditioned, performed, participated, and received career and artistic coaching. Eight virtuosi became Young Artists Debut! Winners and Winning Alternates. An additional 84 children attended the Young Artists Debut! Concerto Concert.
In 2024, we intend to increase capacity by 10% in order to deliver even more quality arts education programs. Please donate, attend events, apply, volunteer to be a part of the Cognizart Community.
