History

Art In Motion, Inc. was founded in Paterson, NJ in September of 2010, by Amanda Addotta, Dacil Tilos, and Gladys Game. As a “thank you” to the great teachers and artists that inspired them, they founded a non-profit organization serving inner-city youth. In January 2011, Art In Motion Inc. became officially registered in the state of New Jersey. By March, they began their first program with around 30 members. In less than a year Art In Motion Inc. had served over 200 youth in their AIM Weeend Studio, Education & Arts, and Center Stage programs. Near their one year anniversary of their first program, AIM Inc. received their 501c3 tax exemption status. With this they were able to expand and serve more youth. Currently Art In Motion is serving over 800 children and continues to grow with each new program.
