Beyond providing the arts education that is lacking in the schools themselves due to tight budgets, ARTS' presents opportunities that children living in rural communities might not otherwise get.
A child living in an urban area, even a low-income child, has access to arts-related activities. For our rural children though, theaters, concerts, or street art shows are not around the corner or accessible through family or friends or through other charitable programs. ARTS is unique in that we remove that barrier of access and bring the professional artists and performers to the students.
More than 17,000 children have participated in our programs over the years. But there is more to do.
Our goals are ambitious but attainable with your support.
