Read what a few of our fans are saying about our programs ...
"It's all there."
“In our ever changing world, learning about and gaining an appreciation for different cultures is necessary for our students and communities. I have worked with the Cultural Kaleidoscope for many years and their programs do just that. From beginning to end, their residencies are exhilarating and educational at the same time. The students, staff, and parents thoroughly enjoy their interactions with the artists. Before arriving at your school, Margie and Sergei advise the staff on how to prepare for grant writing and implementing the residency. Prior to the residency, they provide a teacher resource guide that is aligned to the common core. The resource guide is an invaluable tool! Linking the residency to the common core is vitally important and the Cultural Kaleidoscope makes this effortless through the resource guide. It’s all there! I highly recommend the Cultural Kaleidoscope! Your investment will bring exceptional, quality arts education to your schools and communities!”

"Well worth the money!"
“The Cultural Kaleidoscope programs are always well worth the money. Our students learn so much about the people, their music, dress, food, etc. at the assemblies. Our older students also learn so much at the grade-level workshops as there is a focus on the various musical instruments used with the people of the culture presented. You can always count on a high level of quality with each of the Cultural Kaleidoscope programs!”
- Dr Chris Troester , Principal at Hazel Grove El., Lee’s Summit, MO
“Our parent group insisted their hard earned money from fundraisers be used to bring Cultural Kaleidoscope’s amazing program to our school. The excitement and stories their children bring home during the residency cannot have a value placed on them: PRICELESS!”
- Kurt Weinberg , Physical Education Teacher at Highland Acres El., – Bismarck, ND
"Favorite day of the year."
“The Cultural Kaleidoscope programs are the best assemblies and residencies I have experienced in 20 years of teaching. My school values the cross-curricular content that reaches each teacher’s curriculum. All of the Kaleidoscope presenters make quick connections with students and staff alike. Kaleidoscope Day has quickly become my school’s favorite day of the year!
In addition to the excellent content which provides curricular connections, the Kaleidoscope program is an excellent value. The price includes multiple assemblies and workshops throughout the entire school day. I can’t give a higher recommendation to any other group we’ve had at Clear Creek!”
- Jennifer Donovan, Music Teacher at Clear Creek El., Shawnee Mission, KS
"Students will never forget."
“We have hosted the Cultural Kaleidoscope 3 times in our school. We have absolutely loved the professional, organized, kid-friendly exhibits and presentations! The hands-on workshops and true-to-life authentic experiences are memories our students will NEVER forget! As an Art & Talented & Gifted teacher, I am even more impressed by the curriculum guides, and well thought out lesson plans, activities and other follow-up activity suggestions. This program fit into our curriculum nicely, hitting many Iowa Core & 21st Century learning goals for our district. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Cultural Kaleidoscope for your next assembly & workshop experience. Feel free to contact me directly.”
