Inspiring Young Minds
For art to remain a significant part of our society, we must pass it along to the younger generations. DCA does this by providing classes, programs and summer camps where youth go to learn, grow and create. It has been found that children who receive education in the arts have higher GPAs, better test scores and lower dropout rates. By inspiring and encouraging children to embrace their individual creativity, we give them the resources they need to succeed in life.
Making an Impact
Your contributions are what allow us to carry out our mission of advancing the arts and arts opportunities in Dorchester County. It is because of our generous donors that we can support and showcase deserving artists, provide exceptional education for our students and inspire a local culture of creative and innovative thinkers. We provide sponsors with giving options that reflect a variety of features and benefits that provide recognition and exposure to new audiences.
