From the website:
"Our mission is to provide art services and art education to all community members, with a strong emphasis on the under-served youth of the area. Our programs use art to strengthen the community by fostering cross-cultural understanding. We believe that a positive art experience can change a person's life. The act of creating art brings not only personal insight, but insight into one's relationship with the greater world."
