lives enriched through arts programs


local collaborations & partners

Research studies prove that by providing early arts programs, minds can be opened, spirits can be renewed, and revelations can be embraced. Through arts instruction, children's test scores increase and dropout rates decrease; violence is minimized and the workforce is enhanced. The arts beautify our city, show we care about who we are as citizens, and contribute to how we develop as a community.
