    The Vision

    Research demonstrates that artistic activities for developing minds has strong transformative implications. Artistic activities also instill discipline, fosters self-esteem, and nurtures new methods in mental problem solving processes.

    The Mission

    ATP will provide our future leaders with adult mentors who posses relevant training and experience, ensuring for the strengthening of mind, spirit and skills.

     

    We build upon both traditional and contemporary arts to include: painting, sculpting, beading, drum making, music, literary expression and various dances. ATP will utilize expertise of People from all Nations in the creation of a brighter future through artistic expression.
