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-
