Helping to Inspire Young Artists

DAC’s long-standing donor-funded youth programs bring a legacy of learning and expert art instruction to the area’s Middle and High School students, nurturing creativity, building skills, and providing scholarships toward college art education.

The Middle School Arts Program (MSAP) is made possible by a generous grant from The Reed Foundation.
