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.
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. The upside of this is is that online classes can be accessed by children across the country.
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.
