The arts are basic to a child's perception and understanding of the world in which we live. Creative learning enables children to interpret these perceptions in visual form. We here at the IAFK strongly believe that every child deserves more of the arts in their lives. Our goal is to give less fortunate youngsters a chance and the confidence to create something unique which will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, well rounded citizens.
