Our core program, Take Flight, offers a multi-faceted art education to children aged 4-18 who have been affected by cancer. We provide materials and one-on-one access to creative mentors, many of whom are distinguished professionals in the New York City and New Jersey arts community – all free of charge. We are not open online to children across the country.
Lessons are arranged on a regular basis, depending on the needs of the child. Some classes continue to take place in hospitals, but as a result of COVID-19, the majority are currently being conducted online.
Whether your child is interested in visual arts, acting, creative writing, music, or any other art form, A Free Bird will create a custom curriculum geared to their passion. Children will work toward accomplishing a goal specific to their chosen field. A rising musician? They can try their hand at mastering an instrument. A writer? They can learn to craft a story, play, or screenplay with their mentor’s guidance. The options are endless. Take Flight provides your child with an outlet for creative expression and a daily source of strength and purpose.
