Discovering The Arts SUMMER PROGRAM:

Through the structured visual arts production of art works, young artists or regular student steps into the role of an artist. For those who discover a new talent to those who discover a creative approach to problem solving, art making can affect your life in a positive way.


The arts have been proven to enhance academic performance and give young people a rich reservoir of information upon which to draw from when pursuing other subjects. Professional working artists and art educators will provide positive role model instruction, mentoring and provide a view of alternative life solutions and outcomes through art.
