To support students in providing volunteer programs
W 5-6 pm Downstairs Y.E.S.
Working on an art project at Alice Birney School.
To provide opportunities for local youth to express themselves through the arts in a weekly after school program
A.R.T. hopes to fill some gaps that exist in the local school system because of limited and reduced funding for art programs. Creative outlets can not only be a valuable addition to many children's education, but in some cases art and creative expression may prove to be an invaluable key to a child's potential for personal success.
Service is provided on Friday afternoons typically 2:30-5:00pm.
