We believe in the concept that art is significant to the life of a community and nourishment of human development. Therefore, a commitment has been made to promote the cultural and social importance of the arts through programs, initiatives and alliances.

Of the six graduates completing their BA degrees, two are attending graduate schools (Yale University and Houston Baptist University), two are pursuing teaching careers,and two are seeking positions in the museum field.
Since 2001, in partnership with The Ensemble Theatre, Santa at the Ensemble has brought joy to the holiday season for over 3,000 Harris County children. The day of events includes, arts and crafts, storytelling, science and math workshops and of course a sit-down with Mr. & Mrs. Santa Clause. The aim is to bring holiday cheer and hope to children that may be experiencing hard times during the seasons.
