Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving. On Tuesday, November 28th. Join us as we raise funds for continued programming for our youth.
Performing arts is essential for our children to have a well rounded education. With the arts being limited to children from underserved communities, its important to provide that exposure where access is limited. The Timmons Arts Foundation provides this by creating programs and partnerships that will allow children to be empowered through the arts.
Thanks to the generosity of supporters like YOU, The Timmons Arts Foundation has been able to promote and highlight the importance of the arts in our community by creating opportunities to develop the talents of our youth, as well as supporting arts programs in local schools and youth organizations. Founded in December, 2011, The Timmons Arts Foundation has been active in the community. Our first grant was awarded in April, 2012 to Chicot Elementary School’s Arts and Music Program. The Timmons Arts Foundation has a history of serving the community by supporting at risk youth. In an effort to continue our mission of impacting the community, TAF hosts "Cultivating the Arts Youth Camp" A 5 week summer arts camp that is FREE to children from underserved communities. The camp was held at the Arkansas Baptist College during the month of July, for 150 children ages 7 thru 12. They are instructed by trained professionals in their respective disciplines of visual art, vocal music, instrumental music, dance and fashion design. The students were also instructed on how to live healthy and fit lifestyles. Camp ends with a final production, allowing students to showcase their artistic growth while exhibiting and reflecting on their knowledge and interest learned from the camp to family & friends. In order to continue providing opportunities for our future artist, we need the support of the community. ALL children deserve to have access to the arts...they deserve to discover their passion, to be inspired, engaged, to learn, to enjoy! Join Us! #TeamTimmonsArts
