“When young people are involved with the arts, something changes in their lives.”
CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE, THE IMPACT OF THE ARTS ON LEARNING
“The ultimate challenge for American education is to place all children on pathways toward success in school and in life. Through engagement with the arts, young people can better begin lifelong journeys of developing their capabilities and contributing to the world around them. The arts teach young people how to learn by giving them the first step: the desire to learn.”
RICHARD RILEY, SECRETARY OF EDUCATION
- “The Arts Park”: CTC’s desire is to further serve the community by developing several acres of open space that will help transform once empty urban spaces into vibrant destination “spots” that are nurturing places for families to enjoy.
