Carol McGrevin, Ph.D., Chair
Partner, MCG Partners
Organizational Leadership Consultant
“As a former educator, I’ve always been a fierce advocate for equipping teachers with the tools they need to be more effective in the classroom. The arts are such a natural way to keep students more engaged, and ArtsNOW’s integration of the arts into traditional school subjects is a powerful and effective teaching tool.”
Pamela Walker, CEO & President
“Integrated learning is all about creative ways of connecting. We apply those same principles to the way we work. From our artist consultants to our board of directors, all the ArtsNOW team members work in concert to transform the way students learn and live.”
Sherry Cohen, Secretary
“As a long-time Board member, I have had the pleasure to see how the professional development teachers and educators receive from ArtsNOW equip them to engage their students in a more energizing and creative way.”
Rick Rosell, Treasurer
Partner, Bennett Thrasher P.C.
“My family has a deep history in public education and I see the real results from this organization that make the teacher and student interests a priority. Integrating the arts into education helps deliver a much deeper understanding of all of the traditional subject areas.”
Trustee, Trinity School (Atlanta)
“ArtsNOW is a vital creative resource for teachers, communities, and students. It makes a big difference in how teachers teach, students learn, and we see the resulting positive impact from the schools and school districts we partner with.”
Chairman, Worthscape, LLC
“Engagement, if lost or misplaced, tarnishes learning. ArtsNOW is dedicated to providing solutions. The time is upon us all to see that time in the classroom is most meaningful.”
President and General Manager of Studio Operations, Tyler Perry Studios
“As a father of three children who learn very differently, I appreciate the challenges today’s structured environment presents in the classroom. ArtsNOW teaches practical, creative solutions for the educator by integrating the arts into their instructional toolbox to encourage students to be engaged and enthusiastic learners.”
