Over the past few decades, we have witnessed a trend in public education and government circles to cut funding to the arts. It has been proven that interesting children in the arts at a young age increases their visual skills.
Studies have shown that older adults who both created art and attended arts events reported higher cognitive functioning and lower rates of both hypertension and limitations to their physical functioning than did adults who neither created nor attended art. In this hyper stressed world Of online technology and constant connectivity,
Art gives us that moment of peace and introspection all humans need. Art speaks to us about our culture and society. Art brings meaning and purpose to our common story of human existence.
We believe Art is the expression of our common story that brings us together and promotes understanding, tolerance and acceptance.
