After having participated in many activities and as a former music educator, I can attest to the quality of this organization and their many activities. There is no other volunteer group in Tucson that has done as much as Arts Express to promote the Arts to the young people of this community. The public performances are of professional quality and the Summer Institute for young people is something that should be copied in other cities.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen many students who have gone on to careers in the Arts because of their exposure to Arts Express programs

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish I could provide additional money so there could be a larger impact on the young people of Tucson.

At this point I wouldn't change the direction they are going in.

Arts Express has provided remarkable opportunities for children and adults to experience the arts through after school and summer performing and visual arts classes, public performances and visual art exhibitions for over ten years. The selection of teachers and conductors for each event has been of the highest standard.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing how the children and adults find joy in their arts experiences, build new friendships, become more confident in themselves, and are willing to explore their creative abilities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide Arts Express with sufficient funding to serve more children who do not have the opportunity to experience arts on a regular basis.

As a retired arts teacher and former teacher of AE's Fine Art Youth Acadmey, I can attest to its being a really high quality program. During the month of June, students have wonderful arts experiences with wonderful, recognized teachers throughout the community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a former teacher of program and as a volunteer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it to serve more.
