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-

I am happy to introduce to you,   a website that will spotlight our youth as they participate in activities that will serve to develop their character and leadership skills, not just with regards to their interaction with Your Time For Creative Empowerment, Inc., but in all areas of their lives.   

  www.creativeempowermentarts.org  is an extension of www.yourtime4liny.org and currently features the winners of our 2014 Creative Empowerment Arts Contest as well as an arts gallery which displays  the submissions of all the contestants who received Honorable Mention for their impressive expressions.  

I will keep you posted on the development of other features that our youth will find to be a valuable resource . 

Please take note of our upcoming events on the middle panel of this page.


Kind regards,
