My first involvement with Alcott was through my college, The Art Institute of Kansas City. We did an event there called Artists helping Artists. I made a promise to myself to stay in touch with the staff. They have greatly helped me with art shows and taught me as well. I have attended arts and crafts classes and attended my fellow artists shows. What I love about Alcott is how they help the community. The kids get a wide range of activities that can help throughout life. I try to volunteer as much as possible. Owning a graphic design company I am able to help out with plays, craft events and shows. I highly recommend Alcott to uplift and imagine all your possibilities!

Working with Chris and Chuck and the Alcott center is always so positive. They are always willing to help with the different projects that we are working on in our community and with our PTA Council in KCK. When we needed help with our float for our parade entry, Chris was right there helping out. They were so helpful when we needed a backdrop for our youth committee at our state convention booth. When I needed a phone booth for our superhero installation at our neighboring PTA council, the Alcott center was once again available to us to help out with supplies, expertise and a place to work. We also have used the Alcott center for the last 5 years to hold some of our monthly PTA Council meeting at. They are just a great asset to our community and its families. Alcott Arts Center really ROCKS!

They are so giving of their time and talents. Chris goes to elementary schools and does art with students, with Girl Scouts and others. We appreciate all that Allcott does for the community.

LM Alcott Art Center became a part of my life when I was a teenager. I would come for rehearsals for plays I was in, and then eventually began to come to hold auditions, to share my writing, and see what other artists and performers were doing. I find myself very fortunate to have developed a relationship with an organization that encouraged art for the youth as well as for the community. It is a great place to explore, learn, and savor art. I am thankful for the time I have worked with this foundation, and hope they can continue to be a beacon in the community.
