Better Art Education and Better Communities
How can sitting at a potter’s wheel or painting a watercolor help children grow into well-rounded, successful citizens? Children experience a variety of benefits that transfer to their learning process. The creative process alone allows them to think outside the box and improves concentration. One of the most beautiful benefits though is seen in self-expression and self-confidence.

Your Support and Student Success
Since 2002 the Cultural Arts Center has been the home to several non-profit art organizations and has served as a space for underserved children experiencing art education. The Center has enriched the lives of more than 2,000 children with a variety of arts disciplines that are not always available in school systems in the area. Research has shown that students who study art are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement and three times more likely to be  awarded for school attendance. National, state, and local conversations comprised of for-profit, civic, and education leaders are emphasizing creativity, imagination and innovation-particularly for the future success of the American workforce, the environment, and economic development. (2010 Arts Education Trends Report).  The Cultural Arts Center fosters that creativity that can lead to vivid imaginations, unique innovations, and bright futures.

Meet some of our Students….
Kaylia has been coming to the Cultural Arts Center on scholarship for the last four years. She has explored visual and textile arts while developing her pottery skills. One of her recent pottery projects was making a bowl specifically to go into the Empty Bowls Dothan project, a joint fundraiser for the Wiregrass Area Food Bank. Kaylia is learning to use her talents in art to help others. Kaylia says that working the clay clears her mind and gives her a sense of peace and control in her life. Kaylia’s mom works several jobs to make ends meet and any arts exploration would have been out of the question until the Cultural Arts Center made these classes available.  Kaylia currently attends Dothan City Schools and is an ‘A’ student.

Meet some of the Center’s Successes….
Tunoby began coming to the Cultural Arts Center as part of the Wiregrass Youth Symphony. His love for music expanded to the piano, but he did not have anywhere to practice and his small keyboard did not have the range he needed to become proficient. His music leader in the Wiregrass Youth Symphony told him to contact the Cultural Arts Center director to see if an arrangement could be worked out for him to practice on their Grand Piano. Tunoby did and a relationship between a burgeoning pianist and a center who loves to see students blossom.  After practicing 5 times a week  per week for two or more hours at the CAC, he received a standing ovation at the Wiregrass Talent Quest 2013. He is now pursuing a college education to become an astrophysicist.
