the project

This project is to continue donating Our Family Creative Sample Kits to those in need.  It has been a blessing to see the smiles on families faces when they receive a box.  While distributing one of the boxes to a single mother with a little girl and boy, her daughter who was about 5 years old handed me a flower.  She smiled and said "thank you for giving my family a box."  These boxes are uplifting and inspiring.  For some families, it has been a challenge and stressful navigating through COVID-19 and adjusting to a new way of living.  My hope and prayer is for Our Family Creative Sample Kits to encourage and alleviate some of the pandemic stress caused during this season.

As mentioned, Our Family Creative Sample Kits will be donated to those in need.  Each box will contain a different activity for the family to explore their creativity while creating bonding memories.

Now more than ever, it’s imperative for families to be creative.  The value of Art is essential and has the power to positively impact lives.  Unfortunately, art programs are one of the first programs to be cut due to lack of funding.   Local community and national programs are in constant jeopardy of being drastically cut or eliminated.  Our community events highlight the importance of the arts and creativity.  Here are some major benefits that art provides:

* Healing

* Exploration

* Expanded Imagination

* Reduced stress and anxiety

* Community and Family Unity

* Relaxation

* Expression

* Confidence

* Freedom

We will continue planting seeds of love, hope, and creativity. Thank you for helping us Keep Art Alive.

why we're doing it

My love and passion for the arts began as a little girl.  The beauty of imagination has the power to change lives.  Our programs are created to impact lives and build a supportive community for artists.  We have been a platform for emerging and established artists wanting to showcase their artwork and a bridge uniting various cultures.  In addition, we work with families to disconnect from technology and connect through the world of ingenuity.   Art is everything.  And we are proud to continue hosting community events where people can celebrate creativity.  It has been rewarding to help keep art alive through our Annual events and other programs.
