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-

We Could Not Have Done It Without YOU

It is precisely one month and a day ago today that we observed dedication and commitment at work at our Community Networking Soiree. I still say, we could not have asked for a finer group of volunteers and participants. Please visit our new blog, yourtime4talkblog, to read some of the sentiments we have received with regards to that day. You will also a find a link to the photo album of some of the memorable moments of the event.

As we prepare to bid farewell to Summer 2014, it is with great anticipation that I look forward to November 20th, as Your Time For Creative Empowerment prepares for an evening full of warmth, camaraderie and celebration of the arts as a viable tool of self empowerment for our youth.   
Our hand-picked honorees will soon be featured  on this website. I am also happy to report that there has been heightened participation in our Creative Arts Contest. Keep the entries coming!   

Sincerely,
Madona Cole-Lacy
