Love4FineArt goal is to provide unique and meaningful arts programming for all children and adults, to educate children in the arts, and to build a lifelong audience for the arts.

The source of this idea came from when I was growing up. During the summer months, I would participate in a community outreach program at the school in my neighborhood. They would offer lunch, physical projects, and creative art classes for a low monthly price to families. The art class was interesting to me because I would want to create art work and bring them home to my family.
For this project, it is important to have easy availability for working adults. Most activities will be open-ended and enjoyed on a walk-in basis. The facility will be staffed by working artists. Master artist/teacher will lead each activity. The idea is to work with the recreational centers, who already have a client list and introduce them to the idea of learning the study of art as well as creating pieces to share with friends and family.
As a result of visiting several communities around the world, we focused our
