|The Arts & Education Council helps keep the performing and visual
arts a real and viable option for students and adults alike. It opens the
world of new and emerging literary talent to all members of the community
and focuses its energies to expand the cultural experiences for all ages.
The Arts & Education Council stretches the boundaries of imagination
and constantly encourages members of the community to enjoy the new and
different as well as relish the tried and true. In a time of diminishing
public funding for the arts and less than perfect literacy programs, the
Arts & Education Council opens minds to the joy of learning, seeing,
touching, hearing, thinking, questioning and responding to the
ever-changing world of literature and art.
