ARTS QUOTES

"We introduce the unique qualities and approaches of the visual, literary and performing artist as viable problem-solving and personal development enhancement tools.

We awaken "the artist" in all people as they develop problem solving skills of their own through the vehicle of the arts, fashion and culture."           -Madona Cole-Lacy -

"Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one." -Stella Adler- 

"​Art is a shadow of what a person is thinking. ..     a small glimpse of what they hold inside. Little secrets, regrets, joys...every line has its own meaning."                                
  -Sarah- Los Cerros Middle School, 1999-

With the final submission deadline of our 2016/17 Creative Empowerment Arts Contest fast approaching, we are looking forward to hearing from 8th -12th grade students from all corners of Long Island. We welcome 8th grade students on board for the first time this year.  

​As we make plans for our 2017 community networking soirée and fundraising gala, I would like to share with you some memorable moments of a recent get-together which I refer to as Social Gathering 101.  Stay tuned for more details on our plans for this year.

There is still room for volunteers who are interested in joining us to make a difference in the lives of our youth. 

Kind regards,

Madona Cole-Lacy
