I believe this program provides an experience in the classroom and in the camp setting that can catalyze transformation, foster full self-expression, and generate a true sense of community that will profoundly impact the lives of young people.

Silver Canvas Productions was a program that provided my daughter with such a positive experience. When she entered the program she was very insecure and had many confidence issues. She was cast as one of the leads and this changed how her peer group saw her. She was smiling more and was enjoying school again. Her grades in math and English also improved because of her new found confidence that this program provided. Silver Canvas not only helps the students with their emotional well being but also gives them a taste of being an artist. This program is different from the others because it brings professional artists from the community into the classroom. The experience becomes very detailed and in a short time, the students meet their greatest potential. I think all schools should benefit from this integral program.

Carly Cohen is a consummate teacher. Holding high expectations for herself and her students, she invites them, in her gentle way, to challenge themselves and produce creative work. She also values collaborative, artistic processes and easily creates a community of learners. Her love of theatre, music and dance is infectious. I have never seen anything like it"

There are not enough words to tell you how special you are! Your talent, your vision, your focus, your heart… your temperament, your patience, your smile; yours is a package that is ongoing and endless. It has been, yet again, an incredible experience to work with both you and Meg. I, for one, have reserved a very special place in my heart for you.
