A Few Words About Us
Our mission is to enrich a child’s self-expression by providing a creative and safe environment that is always inspirational, fostering the acquisition of new skills in a creative and challenging manner and developing independent thinking. We provide excellent personalized teaching and guidance in the form of enrichment programs for children of all ages, which develops a child’s character by challenging them to: always strive to do better, discover and develop their innate talents and abilities, and enhance their cognitive, motor, and coordination skills. We believe that the arts are an important expression of one’s individuality and that in a supportive and nurturing environment a child’s potential is bound to flourish.
Enrichment classes have proven to help students enhance their creativity, improve their power of concentration, develop and expand critical thinking skills, boost memory and retention, and achieve superior academic performance. Additionally, they have been shown to augment problem-solving capabilities, provide cultural enrichment, advance intellectual maturity, and enhance self-esteem.
We also provide specialized tutoring in all scholastic subjects, including SAT and ACT. Also we create individualized special studies programs for gifted or advanced students. Please contact us directly for more information and rates: email@example.com
Ai Studios was founded to address the needs of parents and the community at large. Parents saw that many important child development classes in the arts and other areas were being eliminated due to strict budgetary constraints. Many parents voiced their desire to continue to develop their children’s education beyond the basic curriculum in order to more fully prepare them for the future. Ai Studios builds children’s physical and educational life-skills, which are necessary to prepare and empower them for future leadership in their communities and to achieve success in their personal lives.
The founder of Ai Studios, Antoinette Coppola, understood this need and created a series of diverse enrichment programs using a mobile educational approach that brings these programs directly to the schools themselves, providing a safe and structured environment for the students, without logistical stress to the parents. Antoinette has a strong background with rich experience in not only artistry, but also in corporate business management. She fuses together both her art and her business experience to create functional programs that partner with corporations, such as Bloomingdale’s. Through these programs the students will have hands on experience in relevant activities.
Our programs are designed and facilitated by certified instructors, teaching artists and industry professionals experienced in arts education and community-based after school programs.
