Now introducing our ARTs Program!
We want to launch our ARTs program. ARTs stands for Amplifying and Refining Talents. We will establish an artistic teaching and programming branch while also continuing to rebuild their athletic skills. By expanding our reach into the fine arts arena, we will increase motivation and discipline, and further develop young people’s abilities.
VISION FOR THE ARTs
The ARTs program will feature five main areas: music, dance, theater, visual, and media arts. To complement many youths who need engagement in the off-season from basketball, we will run intensive Saturday and Sunday training seminars in each of these areas with teaching artists. Each of the classes would have a size limit to ensure personalized attention to attendees, feedback evaluations to help with the progression of skills, and cater to age groups so content can be scaled to appropriate physical levels. Accommodations would be made for children with special needs.
