Please join us in this effort and together we will make sure that which is so much a part of our inner beings will be nourished. We learn and experience from the past, the arts are part of history, the present is what we should act on and the future is our hope.
We, ourselves being part of creation, have the power to create. Through this powerful outlet, we realize ourselves. From the Arts we learn so much, our heritage, history, and especially who we are. The arts are a very powerful teaching language, a language to be learned. We all benefit from children to adults regardless of social status.
