Mission & Vision

Our Mission   

To bring people together through the arts to create beauty and celebrate life!
We do this through our collaborative and adaptive community arts programs that are designed to bring joy to seniors experiencing loneliness and health challenges by nurturing creative discovery and lifelong learning with those who care for them. 

 

 

 

Our Vision   

To brighten and enrich lives, families and communities through meaningful and enjoyable shared creative experiences.

 

 

 

 

We believe in and value…

…the dignity of human life
We believe that every person is precious, has inherent value and dignity, and should be treated with charity, respect and compassion to live full and enriching lives.
… community and connection
As human beings we value and need meaningful, positive interactions with others. That’s why so many of our programs are built around shared quality time creating beautiful memories with those we love and live with. 
… joy in the moment
While some of our clients with dementia won’t remember what we’ve taught them, they will know the joy of making something beautiful in the moment. And that joy is priceless – to them and to us – as is sharing it with others!
… lifelong learning
People at all stages of life thrive when they feel engaged in something meaningful, and are enjoying learning something new. Making art offers a new learning experience and an opportunity for growth and discovery. As Teaching Artists, we too seek to learn something new for and from every client, and are passionate in our pursuit of excellent care and service by learning about and implementing best practices in our field.
… caring for one anothe
We recognize that many who would benefit from our programs, have very limited financial resources. Which is why we actively search for grants we can apply for, and have our own Benevolent Scholarship Fund to help provide scholarships for seniors in our community to be able to experience the joy of making art with us and those they love. We fund these scholarships by donating a portion of our profits, as well partnering with our client families and members of our community who help us with donations through memorial gifts and sponsorships.
