The mission of Arts For Rural Texas: Enriching lives through the arts and art education.
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 17,000 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.
Headquartered in Fayetteville, ARTS' serves the surrounding rural communities, offering opportunities to all children in participating districts:
