Signpost showing the remoteness of Wolf Point Montana

Bigger Sky Kids sponsors after-school, art-based instruction and provides a safe place for children to participate in program activity. By gathering teachers and artists representing a wide range of talent and ensuring they have essential resources, we enable kids in our community to

  • explore and express their creativity through visual arts, music, dance, drama, and more
  • experience domestic arts such as cooking, sewing, and gardening
  • acquire computer literacy and other life skills

“A substantial increase in arts educational experiences has remarkable impacts on students’ academic, social, and emotional outcomes.”

— The Brookings Institution, 2/12/2019

“Music reaches parts of the brain that other things can’t. It’s a strong cognitive stimulus that grows the brain in a way that nothing else does, and the evidence that musical training enhances things like working memory and language is very robust.”

“The benefits of playing music help your brain more than any other activity,” Inc.com, 8/20/2017

Bigger Sky Kids’ program is about self-discovery, self-expression, skill building and confidence building.
