ARTS Arena


ARTS has created a program to help entertain, educate, & unite our children, families and communities.

We invite the youth, ages 5 – 18, to develop some creative pieces and to share them. This may be a drawing, a painting, a clay piece, a poem, a photograph, a video, music, a short performance, a science experiment. 

"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." -Albert Einstein

Our FREE after school classes introduce children to various forms of art while encouraging creative thinking in a fun and safe environment. Taught by local artists, musicians, and educators, classes are designed to build self-confidence while contributing to artistic skills, leadership development, better academic performance and barrier breaking.  ARTS After School is held weekly during the school year in six rural school districts, three private schools, and two community centers in Fayette county.  All materials are provided.  In order to keep the program going, and offered FREE to all participants, we are accepting sponsorship funds.  

Enrollment Requirements:

  • Students 1st - 8th grade may apply 
  • No enrollment fee required 

Note: Early registration is advised. 

Fine Art Assemblies


“Music is like painting in sound. You take it into your inner heart and never lose it. It’s eternally mysterious.” - Van Cliburn

Since time and expense prohibit transporting regional children to metropolitan areas, ARTS brings the performing artists to our rural communities! These FREE performances give children a front row seat and a backstage pass to world-class fine arts experiences.

Recent performances include: Houston Grand Opera to Go, Ballet Austin, the UH Concert Chorale, a Marimba Band, and a professional storyteller.

Are you interested in performing for the Fine Art Assemblies? 

If so, give us a call today, and become a inspiration!
