Each day over 500 students enjoy exploring the arts at the center during their school day, and return in the afternoon to a place where their personal expression, creative thinking, and artistic skills are honored and encouraged. In addition to the direct artistic benefits, we see firsthand an improvement in their self-esteem and confidence, communication skills, group interaction, and problem-solving skills; all of which equip our children to become more successful in all aspects of life.
Today, more than ever, it is vital that we preserve these spaces for our community's youth to enjoy for years to come and keep the arts in Thomasville strong and sustainable.
