Arts

All our programs, information, and activities are infused with the arts in various ways. Art can be the salve that helps us face problems and personal traumas that may otherwise be too painful or uncomfortable to confront. The arts also provide exuberant expression of our joys and innermost desires, which may not always be deemed ‘appropriate’ to share in our everyday lives. Our Online Galleries bring together artwork that is historically important, culturally diverse, and thematically compelling.

Works of art help us to explore and address our inner states of mind and perceptions, interpersonal relationships, cultural norms and shifts, and our connections to Nature, which unifies us all. We encourage families to experience the arts together, as audiences and creators.
