Vision and Mission Statement
Our programs, both on-site and off-site, emphasize feelings of hope, tolerance, joy, acceptance and understanding of differences as well as likenesses.
It is about the participants discovering within themselves their personal spark, their own light, their own voices.
Within that framework, the directors/facilitators, Darcy M. Swope and Trent Carbaugh,model and encourage:
CELEBRATION of DIVERSITY
The art of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things,
but their inward significance.
Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there will ever be to know and understand.
~ Albert Einstein
Every child is an artist.
The problem is how to remain one once he grows up.
~ Pablo Picasso
I found that I could say things with color and shape that I had no words for.
~ Georgia O'Keeffe
"Failure" is an essential part of the creative process.
