DONATE to the "All in One" Campaign for SMARTS
Be A Part of It!
SMARTS future success depends on the support and generosity of people like you. Donations will be used for the "All in One" Campaign for SMARTS for the new facility and to provide future classes in visual arts, music, dance, theater, and creative writing. Many students and families in our community do not have access to quality arts education in their schools and throughout our region. Help preserve the spirit and legacy that learning in the arts provides and please consider making a donation to help SMARTS to transition into a community-based art school and continue its nineteenth year history in our community. Keep an eye on this website and FB to see SMARTS unfold in our community.
