The power of Art

Giving Everyone The Opportunity To Create

What Is The Power Of Art?

The Power of Art is a program designed to serve special groups in need or with limited access to arts programming and education.

 

Made possible by a grant from the Outer Banks Community Foundation, the Power of Art’s objective is to give those with disabilities and difficulties with self-expression the opportunity to create and make critical decisions through unique art programs.

 

The program was designed to utilize the fundamental power of art to create new outlets for the participants’ memories, dreams and aspirations. Artists interested in being a part of the Power of Art program are encouraged to call (252) 473-5558 or email
