The majority of learning institutions do not have a very inviting or comforting environment. Our founder Joanne Weiner, an artist and an educator herself, knows the learning impact an environment has on the mind. There is a significant difference of learning in a standard classroom that lacks color and character than one that has vibrant colors. Scientific studies have shown that colors do not just change our moods, they – for better or worse – profoundly impact our productivity. For this reason, it’s imperative to decorate a learning environment with a vibrant medley of stimulating hues that increase output and spark creativity.

The energy in our centers creates an emotional balance of well being that allows our students to feel safe, happy, and fully thrive in all aspects of their growth. The elements of art and color are major components for igniting the imagination and love of learning. It is proven that those who learn in an environment they love will retain what they learn and develop a better disposition toward their education. That is why our centers are created and curated to nourish both the emotional and academic well being of our students. As soon as you step into PBIA, you instantly feel and see what makes us so remarkably different and sets us apart from the rest.
