Target demographics: Children, adults, families, seniors of any and all incomes and backgrounds. When we say we want to bring arts opportunities to every member of the community, we mean it!

Geographic areas served: The Bluegrass region of Kentucky.

Programs: Lunch with the Arts: a monthly lunch-hour presentation by an artist or performer on a certain topic. From painters and landscapers to magicians and editorial cartoonist, we've had it all.

Starry Night Studio Painting Classes: allow people to create their own masterpiece and find their inner artist in a social, non-competitive environment.

Blockbuster exhibits: every spring we create a blockbuster exhibit based on a central theme designed to showcase the connections between the arts and sciences. Past themes include dinosaurs, trains, and outer space.

Arts Cart: an outreach program which brings arts activities to seniors and children who are in poverty, at-risk, and/or disabled. This program provides valuable social interaction and structured activities.

Classes: Changing monthly, we provide classes in drawing, dance, drama, and more, depending on our teacher resources and available space.

New Horizons Band: this is a beginning band for adults and seniors, designed to give adults a chance to learn or brush up on a musical instrument and be part of an ensemble.

Danville Sings: this is a group of choirs, including a children's choir, a women's choir, and a summertime community choir, that practice and perform locally.

Mission:
To create arts opportunities for every member of our community.
Results:
This year we were able to host a visiting exchange artist, Janet Crymble, who hails from Danville's Sister City of Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. For six weeks, she's been working in one of our upstairs studios and completing projects with local school groups.

In October, we successfully completed a "Vote" mural in preparation for the Vice Presidential debate in Danville. This beautified our community and fostered community spirit.

Thanks to our improved offering of dance classes, we've been helping with the creation of a Danville Dance Coalition, which will integrate all current dance initiatives in Danville and beyond.
