Communities Outreach

NIA offers interdisciplinary art education to various foundations and non-profit organizations that cater to after school enrichment programs.  NIA‘s objective is to introduce the children to a meaningful art experience. NIA faculty travels and teaches on site at the community center that is equipped to host our classes. 

 

Centers that lack the infrastructure to accommodate our classes bus their students to the NIA’s main head quarters located at the John Larmonie Center in Philipsburg. Through out the academic year NIA is called to give lecture demonstrations on cultural dances at various elementary schools, in addition NIA donates services by offering free dance classes and workshops to students at various centers.
