The program blueprint that Artful Education created on our behalf is a beautifully articulated representation of Sitar’s approach to education. It is both aspirational and deeply aligned with our mission. As this document illustrates, you clearly understand where Sitar is coming from and where we hope to go.

Through our experiences collaborating with Sonya Robbins Hoffmann at the Kennedy Center, we witnessed her creative gifts, strategic thinking, and passion for making arts education relevant and impactful in a 21st century context. Artful Education’s focus on program evaluation, smart growth, and documenting student learning will be a huge benefit to arts and educational organizations looking to improve and elevate how they serve young people's needs.

Having worked with Emily in various capacities over the years, there is no one I would trust more to communicate effectively with educators interested in building on their own knowledge of their school culture. I have no doubt that Artful Education will help schools to grow to become more creative, dynamic and democratic settings for children and adults.
