IMAGINATION EXPRESS IN-SCHOOL PROGRAM


The arts have a transformative impact on people. Surmountable data proves youth involved in fine, performing, or visual arts are more likely to succeed academically, socially, learn to work in groups, problem solve and are willing to take chances.  Ninety percent of the youth in our program do just that.


  • Building partnerships
  • African-American history in schools
  • Cultural awareness for organizations
  • Parent participation
