WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
We educate and empower children, adolescents and parents of secular and faith-based communities in the Long Island area.
We empower by using art, fashion and culture as mechanisms to:
Improve interpersonal relationships
Avoid pitfalls that are unique to the 21st Century
Identify and develop healthy problem-solving
Enhance personal development and increase cultural sensitivity.
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.
