The mission of Arts For Rural Texas is to heighten the visual and performing arts experience in our rural communities with an emphasis on providing educational opportunities for children. 


ARTS is a non-profit organization founded on the belief that the children living in our rural communities must have visual and performing arts experiences as part of their basic education to develop skills such as creativity, confidence, dedication, problem-solving, and accountability  - traits that lead to success in work and life.


ARTS  has removed the barrier of access to the arts for over 5,000 kids in our rural communities. With free classes during the school year and fee-based camps in the summer, children are exposed to a wide variety of mediums. ARTS also brings fine arts to the schools with professional performances and workshops.
