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-

Dear friends:
As we work feverishly to get the gala show on the road, I would like to take a moment to remind you that the deadline for our Creative Empowerment Arts Contest is fast approaching.  I urge parents and community members to invite the high school students in their lives to participate in this contest. 
As promised, all participants are invited to the upcoming gala at no cost to them.  

Also, the deadline for the purchase and submission of ads for our 2014 Commemorative Journal will be here soon.  All of our friends and supporters  are encouraged to click the adjacent link to purchase ads, sponsorships and Gala reservations as soon as possible.

We are excited about these pending activities, and anxiously anticipating raising sufficient funds to again conduct our Community Networking Soiree and our Self Empowering Workshop for High School Student and Their Parents, as well as implement the other creative personal development programs that we have designed.

We are equally excited and thankful to  the sponsors who have committed to helping us make this gala a success thus far. Our Sponsor's Scroll will highlight our gala 2014 sponsors as they come on board  

Sincerely,

Madona Cole-Lacy
