  • To increase community, business and governmental support for art education. 
  • To recognize art as a necessity for the full development of better quality life for all people.
  • To expand art programs in schools and stimulate new ones.
  • To increase community understanding and interest in art and art education through involvement in art exhibits, workshops and other creative ventures.
  • To provide additional opportunities for individuals of all ages to participate in creative art learning.
  • To encourage commitment to the arts by students, community organizations and individuals everywhere.
  • To recognize art education as a viable component of the total education curriculum that develops citizens of a global society.
