Review for Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs Inc, Bonita Springs, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs has so many worthwhile programs for all age groups in so many different venues and does a fantastic job of delivering classes, concerts, exhibits, and getting the community involved. I am currently on the Board of Directors and was active in the original capital campaign to build the original buildings of the current campus. The Center has continued to grow since that time and is currently in expansion mode to expand the performing arts campus, as well as make more room for the visual arts classes.

I've taken numerous classes there over the years, including stone sculpting, clay sculpting, metal, etc. My husband enjoys the water color classes and our grandchildren have attended numerous hands-on exhibits at the Center. My youngest granddaughter is currently taking a dance class and already talking about signing up for a Cookonomic Class (where she'll learn fractions without even realizing it)!

The Center does a phenomenal job of adding art to the classroom in schools that have lost all art funding, and the children's classes, summer camps, and camps over the holidays are always filled to the brim. That speaks volumes about the quality and fun of the instructors and these classes.

I could go on and on. I am passionate about the Center for the Arts of Bonita Springs! It adds so much more to this community than many are aware.

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

Raise more money in order to increase staff and provide even more arts to the community. The new Performing Arts Campus will help greatly with this need.
