What is Art as an Agent for Change, Inc.?

Founded in 2006, A.A.C. has developed a mission that supports hands on learning, collaboration, community engagement, and improving education through dynamic and engaging learning experiences.

Our Mission:
We change the way you use to ART educate, inspire, and engage.

Art as an Agent for Change, Inc. provides groundbreaking learning experiences through the power of STREAM (ART, Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, and Mathematics).

In the Spring of 2006, an organization originating in the mind of Paul Ayo was brought to life by a ragtag band of student volunteer talent. On March 16, 2010 Art as an Agent for Change, Inc. received its tax exempt status. Since, it has delved into the world of art and education designing dynamic experiences for young learners, teens, and adults.  A.A.C works daily to embody its mission to use ART as a means to reshape the educational landscape of our world.



Paul Ayo

Founder and Director of Art as an Agent for Change

Paul Ayo was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. Paul received his B.A. in Creative Writing along with a minor in African American Studies and certification in Nonprofit Management from Georgia College and State University.  He also received his Masters in Secondary Education from Georgia College.

Although Paul explored literacy and language during his college years, his drive to integrate ART, Science, and Language into his pedagogical practices has always permeated his work in education.

Paul states, “Providing educational experiences that promote ART, Math/Science, and Language across disciplines is the key to 21st century learning. Our future rests in the hands of young learners who can critically think and apply skills from every discipline to solve the greatest challenges our world has to offer.”

Paul has developed many new programs that foster the synergy of ART, mathematics, science, engineering, and literacy to reshape curriculum and build engaged and proactive thinkers for 21st century learning.
