“Art is a wonderful expression of creativity and emotions, and it can develop a contemplative and keen sense of observation in the growing minds of our children and grandchildren! Through strong arts education, we learn how to appreciate art, to reflect on our humanity, our culture, and our history.”
— Chris and MaryAnn Turnbull, supporters of arts education at the OAG
