“It is evident that creative thinking cannot be fostered without the opportunity for creative expression. We need to allow every person the chance to discover his or her own unique sense of self. Our children are inheriting a world that will require resourcefulness, confidence and integrity. These qualities can easily be manifested and nurtured through the arts.” -Jen Rosen
“As a child I was drawn to the arts. I vividly remember making art pieces, participating in school plays, and playing musical instruments. These moments filled me with joy, laughter, and creativity. Giving someone experiences in the arts is a gift that they will remember for a lifetime.” -Mary Beth Fletcher
