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 grants from the Outer Banks Community Foundation and Outer Banks Health, 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 for more information.


Power of Art Initiatives

Dare Arts has partnered with local organizations to help meet the identified needs within the community.


Groups who have participated in the Power of Art program are Monarch Beach Club, Outer Banks Health, Outer Banks Dementia Friendly Coalition and Gentle Experts Memorycare (GEM) Adult Day Services, the SNAP group, and Outer Banks Hotline.


We partner with the Monarch Beach Club to provide art instruction and activities to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. 

Through a partnership with Outer Banks Health, a project called Expressions of Hope & Healing is a part of Dare Arts’ Power of Art program. The Expressions project brings free art workshops and artistic resources to community members who have been affected by cancer.
