Institute for the
Arts and Education, Inc.

(IA&E), is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. Its mission is dedicated to enhance artistry and community enrichment through promoting and educating fine arts and crafts among artists and students, of all age groups and diversity, and the general public. IA&E implements ways to enrich lives and strengthen our community through the power of arts. We help teach communities how art work is made, and further enhance the involvement of the community with our events.

A critical component of the IA&E is the invitation to encourage young artists from surrounding area to compete to have their art work displayed in the community. Invitations for both youth and teen art competitions are sent to numerous local K-12 programs. Participants have the opportunity for the public to view their work as well as having it judged by professional artists in the show. In addition, the IA&E calls upon the local colleges and encourages students to display their art work in the “Emerging Artists” section.
