Proceeds from the evening’s festivities support the Timmons Arts Foundation Cultivating the Arts Youth Summer Camp – providing children from underserved communities an opportunity to experience the arts through educational and enrichment programs.
The Timmons Arts Foundation is dedicated to promoting + cultivating the arts in Central Arkansas – nurturing the talent of artists through its support of the arts in local schools and afterschool programs. The foundation provides additional art supplies and musical instruments to supplement existing programs in schools.
Timmons Arts Foundation – in partnership with Arkansas Baptist College, The Derek Lewis Foundation, Pulaski County Youth Services, PepsiCo Foundation, The First Tee of Central Arkansas and Bass Pro Shops – will host the seventh annual Cultivating the Arts Youth Summer Camp in July. The four-week arts camp is available to students, ages 6-12 years old, with an interest in the arts. Participants receive instruction in six areas of art: visual art, vocal performance, instrumental music, dance, theatre and fashion design. The foundation believes students deserve access to a quality and complete education; learning through the arts and self-expression are essential components. Students also receive instruction in fitness activities and education in nutrition.
