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-
