THE STORY:

Theresa Timmons wrote -

The Timmons Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is dedicated to promoting and highlighting 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, we hosted the Inaugural Cultivating the Arts Youth Camp July 7th,  thru August 1, 2014, at the Willie Hinton Resource Center. The camp selected 65 at risk students, ages 7 thru 14,  and developed them in areas of creative self-definition, physical activity, and positive social action.

This year the camp was held at the Arkansas Baptist College, July 6th thru July 31st, which consisted of 83 at risk students, ages 7 thru 12, who were granted admission to the camp free of charge.   They were 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.  This 4 week camp ended with a final showcase on July 31st, at the Mosaic Templars, that allowed the students to highlight 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 must have the supplies necessary.  Therefore, our goal is to raise $20,000 to purchase musical instruments for the camp.  

ALL children deserve to have access to the arts...they deserve to discover their passion, to be inspired, engaged, to learn, to enjoy!
