The goal of The Arts facet is to increase and expand art activity. We recognize how art is an important foundation to good mental health and can foster healthy connections by Building a Healthy Legacy: Our Prescription for the future. Programming includes arts integration within our chapter and a partnership with likeminded organizations sowing the seed of creativity deeper in our community.
In Pine Bluff, the Arts facet is committed to spread the word of Goals 2000, Educate America Act. The major goal is to give as many students as possible as many opportunities as possible to be exposed to the Arts. Studies show that children from low-income families are less likely to be consistently involved in arts activities and instruction. Activities will include: creative writing, spoken word, creative dance, and sponsoring attendance at local events. The facet will make use of community resources such as museums, libraries, the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, and various arts centers.
