Diversability

WhyArts believes that each individual, no matter their circumstance, has unlimited creative potential. We also believe the arts are an incredibly powerful means of communication for the nonstandard learner. That’s why we meet each individual at his or her own level and work from there. WhyArts teaching artists provide a diverse array of meaningful arts opportunities for students and clients at:

  • Ambassador Skilled Nursing
  • Boys Town Hearing Pre-School
  • Gotta Be Me
  • JP Lord School
  • Omaha Public Schools Alternative Curriculum Program (ACP) classes
  • Omaha Public Schools Transition Program
  • MOSAIC
  • Munroe-Meyer Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center
  • QLI
  • VODEC
