All of our programs are offered to encourage experiential learning as well as creative and imaginative workshops and performance in the visual and performing arts. It is our intent to encourage your student’s imagination and their creativity as they learn history and culture. We want to help you meet the state mandates to teach African American History and what better way to do it than through the ARTS.
