Over my time working at Enoch Pratt Free Library, I have brought Art Way Alliance into the library for a number of various programs, and I have always been blown away by how well received they are by the young people that come into the library. AWA artists are patient and very enthusiastic, and their endless willingness to teach youth skills in STEAM areas is crucial in today’s every changing technological landscape. They easily assess the needs of those they are providing instruction and actively engage the youth in ways that show they truly care about education.
