In 2013, Urban Arts Partnership grew its programs and services by more than 100%. This exponential growth was driven by crisis and opportunity. In New York City and Los Angeles, there is an urgent need for solutions to the problems plaguing our public school systems. UAP works where the need and the potential for change are the greatest. In partnership with under-resourced schools and hard-working educators, our professional Teaching Artists work to help raise low attendance rates, serve recent immigrants grappling with course work and a new language, engage students who’ve failed their exams multiple times, support students with disabilities, and re-engage students who have lost a love for learning. I am particularly excited to announce that this year we utilized the talent and experience of our alumni by hiring a team of former UAP students to serve as mentors and teaching assistants in our partner high schools. These UAP graduates use their unique perspectives to provide critical peer-to-peer support to disengaged and disconnected students to keep them on track for graduation. While we have many programs at Urban Arts Partnership, we have only one goal: to improve the educational outcomes of our most vulnerable students through the implementation of innovative arts-based programming. We directly impact over 12,000 students in 100 schools, and provide professional support and resources to 500 teachers—giving them the tools and support they need to infuse the arts into the academic curriculum even after our Teaching Artists have left the building. We use an arts based approach because we know that low income students who receive arts education are four times more likely to have high academic achievement and three times more likely to have high attendance than those who don’t. The data that we have collected over 20 years provides clear evidence that our integrated arts programming helps schools to close the academic achievement gap. The fact that Urban Arts Partnership has grown in an environment where arts programs are being cut in public schools across the nation proves that you and our partners believe in us too. We are, as always, grateful for your support, PHILIP COURTNEY, Chief Executive Ofﬁcer

America’s schools are facing huge challenges, including narrow curriculum and strict focus on standardized testing that teaches students to fill in multiple choice bubbles instead of how to think creatively and problem solve, skills that are essential for helping them to compete in today’s economy. - The Presidents Committee on the Arts and the Humanities
What is the KEY TO IMPROVING THE ACADEMIC OUTCOMES for our most vulnerable students?
Arts Integration is the fusion of arts and academic instruction to ignite student engagement and drive educational outcomes. Every day, 130 Teaching Artists partner with educators to provide the tools, resources and creative approaches to engage students and meet Common Core learning standards through the arts.
Urban Arts Partnership advances the intellectual, social and artistic development of underserved public school students through arts-integrated education programs to close the achievement gap.

Our youth are overwhelmingly students of color living in high poverty communities. Many are recent immigrants or English Language Learners, others live in temporary housing, experience social behavioral problems, require individualized education plans (IEPs), have a history of chronic absenteeism or have entered school at low achievement levels. Despite these barriers, the young people we serve continue to defy their circumstances. When given a real opportunity to learn, they ďŹ‚ourish as academic achievers, artists and leaders.

EVERY DAY, THOUSANDS OF PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF THE ARTS THROUGH UAP PROGRAMS.
OUR PROGRAMS THE ACADEMY The Academy is a rigorous arts and leadership out-of-school program that delivers cutting edge arts programs designed to develop student voice, strengthen academic performance and position graduates as agents of change in their communities. ADOBE YOUTH VOICES Adobe Youth Voices is a professional development program that trains and supports a community of educators to use technology in their classrooms, empowering students to become media makers and active global citizens. CORE CORE is a whole school model designed to increase student engagement, improve attendance and keep students on track to graduate by enriching core curricula, strengthening teacher practice and supporting families.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT UAP offers customized and embedded professional development workshops for educators, administrators, and parents that teach arts based approaches to solving the community’s unique needs. FRESH PREP Fresh Prep’s standards-aligned approach harnesses the power of Hip-Hop music and youth culture to help students who have failed the Regents Exam, a requirement for graduation in New York City, to gain the conﬁdence, content-related vocabulary and critical thinking skills they need to beat the test and graduate high school.
STORY STUDIO Through the power of visual art and storytelling, Story Studio advances literacy development for low-income English Language Learners. Through an engaging, arts-embedded curricula, Story Studio increases comprehensive ELA achievement in reading, writing, speaking and listening. LOS ANGELES Partnering with the LA Uniﬁed School District to fulﬁll its mission of bringing the arts into every classroom, our Los Angeles programming integrates visual art and digital media into core academic subjects, accelerating student achievement and developing teacher practice to create a sustainable model.

Co-teaching provides classroom teachers with professional support, resources and new approaches they can use to enhance the teaching and learning process even after the Teaching Artist has left the classroom. Our embedded professional development model weaves the arts into the fabric of the academic lesson plan, helping to ensure the arts are a lasting presence in every student’s life and every teacher’s toolkit.
ZAWADI NOEL | Teaching Artist Arts education brings arts professionals into the classroom to collaborate with classroom teachers to create creative environments that engage students in the learning process. As a Teaching Artist, Zawadi works with classroom teachers to integrate artistic practice into core subject areas, bringing content to life.
I believe teaching is more than just administering information. Teaching is about building lasting relationships where students feel supported and challenged, while developing an understanding of self and the world around them. As a Teaching Artist my role is not only to teach my art form but rather to root myself into the schools I work in, as a role model and mentor.
NICHOLAS P. | Fresh Prep Student Nicholas P. is a student at Metropolitan Diploma Plus High School who took the NYC Regents Exam for the ﬁrst time this year. The Regents are a requirement for graduation, but like most of his peers, Nicholas is a transfer student and is currently over age, undercredited, and in danger of not graduating on time. Nicholas participated in the Fresh Prep program last fall with UAP Teaching Artist Will Miles, who co-taught with Nicholas’ history teacher to deliver engaging and exciting test preparation.
Nicholas was inspired by the content-based music provided, which he listened to in his free time and knew by heart. Soon enough, Nicholas became a leader within his class, helping his peers with their work when he ﬁnished early. He also shared his poetry in class, which deals with the challenges of growing up in Brownsville, Brooklyn, a neighborhood beset by violence. On the morning of the exam, Nicholas’ conﬁdence was soaring. Nicholas scored a 92 on the Global History exam the school’s highest score to date.
arts + math + science + english + history = ARTS INTEGRATION
MARLIN A. | UAP Alumni As an incredibly shy English Language Learner from the Dominican Republic, Marlin sought UAP programming as a means of integrating herself into her new community, both in and out of school. At the Facing History School, UAP Teaching Artists provided her with both arts-integrated classroom lessons and after-school studio electives. In addition, Marlin traveled to the UAP ofﬁce after-school to work with the Teaching Artists in UAP’s Media Lab, where she created acclaimed documentaries addressing a range of social issues. “When UAP Teaching Artists came into my classroom, it brought new life to the material.”
Marlin graduated from the Facing History School with honors, and is now attending John Jay College for Criminal Justice, pursuing a degree in Forensic Psychology and Public Administration. She continues to be a vital member of the UAP community, serving as a mentor for struggling high school students through the iConnect program and interning with the UAP programs department. Marlin is one of 17 UAP Alumni currently employed by UAP to serve as mentors to at-risk high school students.
CAREEN HALTON | Classroom Teacher Careen Halton is a lead teacher at MS 131 in Manhattan’s Chinatown. The school has a unique population of students who are immersed in their native culture, which makes learning to speak and listen in English very challenging. Ms.Halton works with UAP’s Teaching Artists to bring visual arts and storytelling into her classroom, empowering her students to share their personal stories, while mastering ELA standards.
UAP helps my students with English, building vocabulary and background knowledge, which they’re lacking in. My students struggle with academics, especially this year’s special needs group because they have low self esteem. To have the chance to express themselves in a totally different way is great.
THE 24 HOUR PLAYS
In addition to bringing your favorite celebrities to the stage for a one-night-only experience, The 24 Hour Plays® provides two UAP students with the opportunity of a lifetime - to have their work performed on a Broadway stage. UAP poetry student Dasia Carr introduced each of the six plays with an original haiku. This year’s playwriting winner, UAP alumni and Nagler Scholar, Devin Mojica, amazed the audience with his play, House of Hell.
How did Devin Mojica feel about his experience on Broadway? There’s nothing like it in the world… I am so thankful and so blessed.
URBAN ARTS FESTIVAL
The 8th Annual Urban Arts Festival brought together more than 600 students from across NYC to celebrate student creativity and innovation.
Performances, presentations and workshops given and attended by students featured exceptional original work in theater, music and dance on the Main Stage of the 92YTribeca; ﬁlm and digital arts in the screening room; visual arts in the gallery space; and creation stations where students got hands on experience in costume making, music track production and large scale collaging. Artistic Board Members Dres, Michael Kenneth Williams, DMC and Sway celebrated Urban Arts Partnership’s graduating seniors and their artistic and academic accomplishments at the evening FriendRaiser.
THE NAGLER SCHOLARSHIP
Each year, one of our many talented students is chosen to receive a $40,000 scholarship generously donated by Board Member Niclas Nagler.
The winner of the 2013 Nagler Scholarship, Sarwat Siddiqui, is currently attending Fordham University, pursuing a degree in neuroscience.
I joined the UAP Playwriting Program 3 years ago. I was initially hesitant, as it meant I would have to face a two hour-bus, ferry & train-commute from Staten Island to the UAP office throughout the year, while also balancing my challenging AP and honors coursework. However, it didn’t take me long to realize the opportunity was worth it. I needed an outlet to express myself and cope with my challenging home environment and low self esteem. I entered UAP as a quiet, shy and insecure tenth grader, reluctant to share my work. Over years of kind and positive feedback and support from my teachers, mentors and peers at UAP, I gained confidence in both my writing and in myself.
SARWAT SIDDIQUI 2013 Nagler Scholarship Recipient
This has been an extremely difficult year. I started my senior year excited about my future but within a month, Hurricane Sandy derailed my life. I lost my house and everything I own. As you can imagine, having to deal with this disaster while taking care of my relatives took a heavy toll. I began to worry that I wouldn’t be able to afford to go to the college of my choice and would have to put my dreams on hold. Thanks to the Nagler Scholarship, I am able to go to college and pursue my dreams.
