We provide underserved youth with access to high quality art education opportunities that nurture the powerful and transformative skills of visual and performing arts. Youth who participate in the arts do better in school, have greater success in future careers and are more involved in their community.Kids in our community are missing out on opportunities to learn skills that will help them succeed in life because art classes are either too expensive or simply are not offered outside of school. Every lesson, project and experience that we provide teaches creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills and explores ways that art can manifest itself in a life or career.We use art education as a vehicle to empower youth, promote student achievement, and propel kids towards vibrant futures. Every art experience we provide offers the opportunity for students to express themselves in an environment where there are no wrong answers and where every mistake can teach them something new.We believe that every child is creative, that they can solve problems, and that their ideas matter. By providing professional and supportive instruction, high-quality materials, and an inspiring setting to explore their creativity we set students up for success that reaches far beyond the classroom.
