2018 INNER-CITY ARTS IMPACT REPORT


Dear Friends, This is a call to action. Our country is in need of compassionate, creative thinkers, innovators, and changemakers. When public education, and more specifically arts education, remains drastically underfunded, it is imperative that all of us champion an education system that unlocks the creative potential of every student through art. At Inner-City Arts, I see the power of creativity in action. In our studios, hundreds of young people collaborate with each other, develop problem-solving skills, share bold ideas through art making, and think critically about their futures. My desire is that as you read our Impact Report, you see the power of your support. By volunteering in our studios, attending our events, or making a contribution, you maintain and uplift our mission of providing a creative home for the young people of this city.

Please be inspired about the work being done at Inner-City Arts, but more importantly, I encourage you to take action — become an advocate, vote for arts education, and use your platform to amplify the voices of our youth. High-quality arts education is not optional, it is an investment in our youth and in our future. In partnership,

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT AND CEO

As we enter our 30th year, we celebrate the great vision of co-founders Bob Bates and Irv Jaeger which continues to fuel our work. We are grateful for the many teaching artists, volunteers, staff members, an incredibly strong board, and countless supporters who have brought the transformational power of art to more than 200,000 students since Inner-City Arts first opened. I look forward to honoring our history and celebrating our future with you as we bring this year’s Imagine Awards to campus for the first time in October.

Bob Smiland President and CEO

WHY WE ARE HERE The arts and creative learning are essential in the development of a young person. Studies show that students flourish when presented with the opportunity to explore their creativity. They develop self-confidence, gain selfefficacy, show academic improvements, and learn how to better collaborate and communicate with one another—building a healthier, more inspiring society. Still, inequity in education continues to create significant barriers to the arts. Students from low-income households and students of color receive less arts instruction and at a lower quality than their counterparts.* Our work creates access, helping to level the learning field across socio-economic boundaries, because a creative education empowers young children and teens from under-resourced communities to thrive.

WHY WE ARE HERE

*From 2017 LA County Arts Commission’s countywide survey examining the state of arts education in K-12 public schools

Students who have an arts education are 5x less likely

to drop out of school.

Research shows that economically disadvantaged students who are highly engaged in the arts are much more likely to graduate from high school and almost

2x as likely to graduate from college as their peers with no arts education.

2018 HIGHLIGHTS

Thank you to Vera R. Campbell and members of the Founders’ Board for supporting students even after they leave this campus.

In June of 2018, we hosted our largest Summer on Seventh rooftop concert party yet with a special dj set from Mark Ronson, a live performance by Mayer Hawthorne, open studios, food trucks, and more than 1,700 guests on our campus!

A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD AT IMAGINE AWARDS

CANET FOUNDATION GIFT The Canet Foundation awarded Inner-City Arts with a 10-year $350,000 grant. “Inner-City Arts doesn’t just teach art. They teach creative thinking, a skill that kids will take into everything they do later in their life. It’s this dedication that makes InnerCity Arts unique and a model for the rest of the country. We look forward to a long partnership.”

-Nick Torokvei, Director

Chief Program Officer Beth Tishler was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award during the 2018 Imagine Awards at City Market Social House, alongside Philanthropic Leadership Award honorees Craig and Marion Benell, for her tireless leadership and dedication to the organization, our mission, and our students. “Beth is a part of the indelible spirit of Inner-City Arts. For 26 years, she has enlivened this organization with her special tenacity and deep commitment to the students and communities we serve. Every day, Beth pushes Inner-City Arts forward.”

STEAM CONNECTIONS RE-LAUNCH

For years, we have had the vision of bringing the spirit of Inner-City Arts into spaces outside of our campus and providing quality arts education to more students. We are pleased to celebrate one successful year of partnership with Children’s Institute, Inc (CII)! Since our launch in Fall of 2017, we have served nearly 900 new students in our visual and media arts satellite studios at the CII location in Historic Filipinotown.

The Professional Development Institute re-launched STEAM Connections, a four-part series of experiential workshops for educators with a focus on engaging activities that integrate the “A” in STEAM.

A THEATER COMMUNITY FOR TEENS

The Rosenthal Theater launched a new series of events under the title Teens Take the Theater, a space for high school theater engagement and a stage for student voices to be shared and heard.

In the Fall, we introduced a new Rosenthal Theater event series called LA SPEAKS, a gathering and platform for voices in our community. In its inaugural formation, LA SPEAKS: On the Evolution of the Artist was presented in collaboration with the Work of Art student leadership team and welcomed a teen audience to engage with professionals and emerging creatives through a day filled with special guest keynotes, discussions, interactive workshops, and visual art exhibitions.

INSTRUCTIONAL DAY PROGRAM

(LATA)

Each year, in partnership with LAUSD and local charter schools, we transport thousands of students to our campus for high-quality arts instruction in one of our eight studios, during the school day, two times per week, for seven to eight weeks. Each class is 75 minutes long and engages students—alongside their classroom peers and teachers—in a creative curriculum led by professional teaching artists. We offer the following art forms: ceramics, media arts, visual arts, creativity lab, music, dance, drama, and filmmaking.

HOURS OF ARTISTIC ENGAGEMENT EACH SESSION

At Inner-City Arts, we offer exposure to so many different strategies of thinking, which are critical for dealing with life. It’s why I joined the Creativity Lab team. Students are allowed to come into a supportive environment and the insecurity surrounding not speaking up for fear of presenting the ‘wrong answer’ melts away. Our radical approach to problem solving and our warm validation during this period of their development — it will impact their lives forever and empower them to do bold things in the future.

5,426

I’ve been working in arts education for over a decade, and young people still continue to push my notion of what’s possible. We provide materials, access and instruction, but students take those same materials and do something radically different from what you would expect. I often find myself saying, ‘I wouldn’t have seen that! I wouldn’t have gone there!’ And, they go there. They do that. And it’s incredible.

INSTRUCTIONAL DAY PROGRAM

“All people have creative capacity and nurturing those capacities, especially for young people, is good for humanity.

K-8 STUDENTS SERVED IN 2018

Outside of creative critical thinking, students learn how to treat others. One of the cards we recently received thanked studio assistant Allie for her kindness, which they found inspirational. And that’s because, at Inner-City Arts, we teach with everything. How you speak to students has lasting impact on their lives. A brief, but powerful, encapsulation of our impact came on the back of an enormous handmade card from a group of 6th graders. Among sentiments expressed in colorful marker, a girl wrote, ‘Thank you for treating us like first class students.’”

SUMMER MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM

This immersive program offers two three-week sessions designed to meet the unique learning and developmental needs of middle school students during the summer months when learning loss has been shown in studies to increase, especially amongst under-resourced student populations. Here, rising 6th, 7th and 8th graders are welcome to engage with their peers and explore their creativity in four different art forms across the visual, media, and performing arts.

STUDENTS SERVED IN 2018

Students were invited to select from a unique offering of workshops, including: COMICS, DIGITAL MUSIC, DRUM RAP, IMPROV, SONGWRITING, TEXTILE PRINTING, AND MORE.

CONNECTING YOUNG ARTISTS TO CREATIVE PROFESSIONALS

“I spent most of my life doing what you are doing right now—exploring and discovering,” said former NFL football player and current CEO of The Imagination Agency Martellus Bennett to a theater filled with students. “Creativity is something you can never discover enough of, so you always have to find new ways to explore your own imagination. Now, I get to be creative every day.” Martellus toured the campus, screened his new show, and answered questions from students about why he left professional football to write, direct, and animate full-time.

SUMMER MIDDLE SCHOOL PROGRAM

During Summer 2018, Inner-City Arts invited a host of Los Angeles creative professionals working in various fields to perform, talk, or work directly with our middle school students, providing a look at what it’s like to transform your creative passion into a professional career.

The American Contemporary Ballet conducted a special interactive performance and invited students to collaborate with performers to choreograph their own dance. The ballet dancers later answered questions and shared what motivated them to pursue such a physically-challenging and exhilarating career. And thanks to Paradigm Talent Agency, Australian electronic recording artist GG MAGREE and her team paired up with middle schoolers in our Digital Music Production workshop to give feedback and listen to the students’ creations.

“What we represent is a fresh breath of artistic and ambitious talent,” he proudly shares. “I was mostly inspired by all of the Inner-City Arts Graphic Design Branding workshops I took, which helped me formulate my ideas and then bring them to life. I have become more confident in my ideas and Inner-City Arts has encouraged me to express them more freely.”

Jared Fonseca, a 12th grader from East Los Angeles, joined Inner-City Arts two years ago and has since discovered that active engagement in the arts lends itself to more than just developing a skill. For him, it has sparked bold ambition and has grown his network in ways he didn’t realize were possible when he first signed up.

Whether it was in Graphic Design, Portfolio Drawing, Photography, or Textile Printing at Inner-City Arts, Jared believes that exposure to art-making vastly improves the quality of his life. “It gives me the chance to put anything I am feeling in a visual format, and serves as a form of therapy for me,” he says. “It teaches me a lot about my own perspective and allows me to interpret things I go through on a daily basis in a new way, which adds more beauty to the dark things in life, because everything can be inspiration.”

A SAFE SPACE FOR DISCOVERY Calynn Watson Fields, a high school senior from South Central LA, didn’t have a lot of friends, didn’t know she could make people laugh, didn’t know she had something so important to share with the world – her story and vision. But that changed when she signed up for an Eamon Cannon Comedy workshop at Inner-City Arts five years ago. What she discovered after more workshops and, later, through the Work of Art program was her own unique voice and a new confident self. She says it’s transformed her life. “I’m not that shy kid I used to be,” she says. “I’m more goal-oriented now. I know how to create a resume, how to apply for scholarships, and it’s given me a lot of confidence – opening doors that were never open before. College hasn’t always been on my mind and now I’m focused on it.” Because of Calynn’s interest in law and politics, the Work of Art program organized a shadow day for her at Los Angeles City Hall and paired her with the ACLU for a paid summer externship, which gave her the opportunity to also travel to Washington DC. Her experiences here have ignited a deeper interest in pursuing social justice work. Calynn plans to attend a four-year college, and intends to use her filmmaking, photography and creative writing skills to impact the world around her.

“I hope that I can use my art to shed a light on injustices in the world.” Reflecting on a film project she completed over the summer that brought a teaching artist to tears, she says, “I can never forget that feeling. It’s like something inside of me woke up and I realize now that I have a voice. Not just a voice for me to hear, but a voice to share with others.”

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Recognizing the urgent need for students to be more deeply engaged in their education, the Inner-City Arts Professional Development Institute supports public education through programming designed to provide educators and administrators with meaningful strategies for integrating creativity into core curriculum. Each in-depth series focuses on various methods for engaging students in their own learning, enhancing each student’s ability to achieve academic and personal success.

EDUCATORS SERVED IN 2018

“I’ve definitely focused in on teaching as a holistic practice,” said Amanda. “I’m now looking for connections in all areas of my curriculum and looking at art as a key part.”

EDUCATORS IN TRAINING

Graduate-level students received up to 13 days of intensive arts training at Inner-City Arts as part of their graduate studies.

1,117

The strategies Amanda learned in our workshops have transformed the culture of her classroom. Drawing, bookmaking, creating mandalas, and exploring performing arts are just a few integrations that have deepened her students’ understanding of different subject matters, helping them express more freely.

ADMINISTRATORS, CLASSROOM TEACHERS, TEACHING ARTISTS AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS trained in evidence-based strategies for arts integration and implementation of creative practice.

In the Fall, she had the opportunity to return with her students. Here, Amanda observed her fifth-graders becoming more confident, asking questions more readily, and persevering when faced with challenges. Amanda herself pushed out of her comfort zone, growing closer to her class by creating alongside her students in our studios.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Amanda Tooley, a fifth grade teacher at Angeles Mesa Elementary School in Crenshaw, first engaged with Inner-City Arts in 2018 by participating in the Professional Development Institute’s Creativity in the Classroom series. Seeing the impact of the workshops on her own teaching practice propelled Amanda to later attend our Summer Creativity Practicum and STEAM Connections series.

K-8 CLASSROOM TEACHERS

participated in arts and creativity workshops as part of attending Inner-City Arts with their students through our Learning and Achieving Through the Arts school-day program.

“My students are encouraged to build community in the classroom. They better understand how to have conversations, own their work, and acknowledge each other.” One day, after writing a collaborative poem, her students, unprompted, grabbed musical instruments and turned the poem into a song. Inspired by creative happenings like this in her classroom, Amanda now advocates for arts education and shares art-centered lesson plans with other educators.

- Richard Cabral In October 2018, The Rosenthal Theater produced Fighting Shadows, Richard Cabral’s one-man show, which follows his early life as a gang member in East Los Angeles through to his life-affirming story of transformation made possible by his will and the good work of Homeboy Industries and Father Greg Boyle. Thanks to the generosity of the Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation, select performances were presented for the first time to local high school classes at no cost. During post-show conversations with Richard, the teen audience asked questions about his journey, learning from his creative practice as an actor, director, and storyteller. Adrian, a junior at Central City Value High School connected deeply to Richard’s story. “As a Mexican-American who has grown up in a poor neighborhood, I’ve had to experience gang violence firsthand. I had family members that were in gangs. It is important to hear Richard’s story because it tells a tale that is universal and highlights the struggles that Latinos go through,” said Adrian. “This play taught me that second chances are good, that one can leave that life behind and give hope to those that might be in a similar situation.”

TOTAL ATTENDEES IN 2018

“I must pass the message that art saves. I believe storytelling saves lives.”

Fighting Shadows allowed not only our young teen audience to engage in the profound questions the play raises about love, home, and justice, but also enabled community members to explore difficult themes in the safe, creative environment of our theater. Through creative writing engagements, audience members composed letters to currently incarcerated young people and adults. Richard’s story brought 1,500+ audience members to The Rosenthal Theater with sold-out shows, and Fighting Shadows became an opportunity for hundreds to share their own stories and reclaim their spirit through storytelling and art.

OUR BOARD

“Having had the opportunity to volunteer in the studios and watch my son attend sessions, I now recognize more fully the expansive impact of Inner-City Arts’ programs. Inner-City Arts teaches core skills and habits of mind: creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, clear communication, curiosity, open-mindedness, and respect. The arts are a means for supporting students so that they are equipped to face the challenges of the future as creators, communicators, and leaders.” -Vanessa Walker-Oakes New Inner-City Arts Board Member, Joined 2018
