Founded in 1999, ASAP! is a social profit institution recognized for its high-quality, portable, immersive learning experiences. What began as a small after school arts program has evolved into a wide-ranging education organization whose arts-infused programming is brought into schools and community spaces around Connecticut. Through curriculum-aligned in-school projects, collaborative summer programs, and weekend and after school workshops, ASAP! delivers safe spaces for exploration, collaboration, and discovery vital to a journey of joyful learning.
We believe that learning which happens through art practices and their inherent social and emotional, observational, and self-reflective capacities can be more authentic, deep, and exciting for students. When we honor young people’s imaginations, invite them to create, encourage them to take risks, and trust their resourcefulness, they will become the empowered, resilient, and compassionate adults the world really needs.
