“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.”

“I know first-hand of the unique challenges to children who learn in a non-traditional way. I’m a big believer in the mission of ArtsNOW and the enhanced learning environment their approach brings to the classroom.”
Senior Principal of Arts & Cultural Division, Blackbaud
As a parent of two children who have gone through the public school system, I've seen firsthand how they engage and learn differently. I am proud to leverage my technology background to help ArtsNow to reach new audiences, become a world-class fundraising organization, and expand our integrated approach into as many schools as possible.
Chief Marketing Officer & SVP, Milliken & Company
As a mother of three, digital marketing executive, and life-long learner, it is clear to me our education system needs a transformation that puts the student at the center. The approach ArtsNOW takes by integrating the arts into core curriculum is brilliant. Infusing creativity naturally encourages students to unleash their curious minds. I am honored to be associated with this work and the impact it will have on students today and in the future.
