The arts - whether visual, performing or literary -- are critical to the development of a whole, healthy dynamic human being, permitting self-realization and actualization. Our Founder, Ms. Afrika Abney has been working on building Kuumba Expressions since 2015.
Kuumba Expressions present a variety of free or low - cost workshops that seek to offer a solid foundation in the visual and performing arts. We teach participants regardless of their geographic locations, educational background or socioeconomic status.
Most of our presentations have been conducted in public schools, libraries and special events for non profit organizations. The intent of our efforts are always rooted in a design to help youth improve their academic achievements and to become better, contributing citizens in their neighborhoods.
Fortunately, we have succeeded in that key goal. Our participants have realized improvements in math, reading, and other important subjects. Equally important, there have been fewer recorded instances of behavior problems and better attendance in schools.
