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:

This is Just a quick note to say that we are well on  the way with plans for our annual fundraising gala. I can already tell that this event promises to be a splendid one for both the adults and the youth we will invite to join us.  I am quite excited and thankful for the encouragement and support that I am receiving from some like-minded individuals. Thank you for being such a refreshing wind beneath my wings. I am looking forward to our Gala Kick Off event on Thursday.   

My thoughts are with my Father and the legacy of the teaching and learning process he left behind for all who encountered him.    I would have joined Papa who passed away in May of this year, to celebrate his 96th birthday today. Though I miss him, I take consolation in the fact that he planted seeds that have sprouted into plants I am proud to tend in his absence.  

As I sign off, I call your attention to the fact that it is not too soon to conveniently pay for your reservation, purchase a journal Ad or a sponsorship package for our upcoming gala. Click here.      


​Sincerely,
Madona Cole-Lacy
