“It’s just amazing how much your mindset changes when you walk into CityArts. Suddenly your priorities completely shift. It becomes all about the kids. There’s something beautiful in that…and something beautiful in having kids that are looking forward to seeing you every week.”
– Elizabeth Grammaticas, RISD Fridays Teaching Artist
