Mission statement

Art is not the possession of the few who are recognized writers, painters, musicians; it is the authentic expression of any and all individuality. In participating in the work of art, they become artists in their activity. They learn to know and honor individuality in whatever form it appears. The fountains of creative activity are discovered and released. The free individuality which is the source of art is also the final source of creative development in time.
John Dewey,  American philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer whose ideas have been influential in education and social reform.
