Thank you for your interest in becoming an Arts, etc. Program Partner.  Our organization has proudly been partnering with local Charleston non-profit arts organizations since 2014.  With our funding and the stellar quality of programs delivered by our Program Partners, students on Johns and Wadmalaw Islands are given opportunities to explore the visual, literary, and performance arts through field trips, in class instruction, student assemblies and more as a supplement to their school arts instruction.   In addition, teachers are also given opportunities for professional development with an arts focus.
