NATIIARTS PROJECTS

NatiiArts considers a challenge that exists in the community and imagines the way in which the arts can support a resolution to the issue. Through partnerships, national and international, lessons relating to childhood obesity, HIV/AIDs prevention and maternal health are addressed in artistic form. We partner with corporations, as well as health based and grassroots organizations. 

 

We recognize the importance of starting healthy behaviors early, children must be both physically and mentally healthy to function well in school and in life. Therefore, several of our projects are designed to address childhood obesity, which results in hypertension, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. As we support children, we offer programming and professional development for early educators and families. While encouraging healthy living techniques in the lives of children, we reinforce the fundamentals of the early education curriculum with the My Little World Educational Music Series and provide community programs with the tools to share healthy living practices to the entire family with the My Little World "LIVE" Theatre Production.

 

Our product line also features materials for the implementation of the My Little World Education Series in classrooms and homes, handmade soft sculpture "Wise Men" Dolls and Handmade Wedding Brooms. Finally, you are invited to enjoy our recently developed reading component, "Monk & Miles", The Happiest Two Rescue Kittens in The World!, and "Saturday Mornings" - The Memorable Moments My Father No Longer Remembers
