We believe the arts to be of primary importance to the survival of the civilization, to the health of the society, and to the quality of life of each individual member.
We believe art is not just entertainment; not just a luxury; not just a pleasant pastime; not just momentary gratification; not just activity for the elite.
The experience of art allows us to participate in the universal creative process, open hearts and minds, awaken feelings and brings delight and joy.
There is no culture without the arts.
I am considering applying to your school. Please contact me with further information about your programs. Thank you.
