Maricopa's Premier Arts & Fine Crafts Festival and Charity Fundraiser for the American Heart Association
Art for the Heart
Starting out as a club organization, we quickly learned that our goals were to create a community of students to learn, grow, and develop together. At our very first leadership training back in September of 2018 we began planning how our club could do all that.
First, we needed a plan to improve our skills, a way to bring our students opportunities, and finally a plan to make a difference in our community.
We made a decision at that training to provide support for students, community members, and our school by creating the first-ever Art for the Heart Festival within our city.
Since art is often such a solid reflection of the artists' heart, we thought, what better charity to donate funds to than the American Heart Association, and what a better way to showcase our cities artistic talents than with art and fine crafts in the form of a city-wide and beyond festival.
