About

Our Mission

To educate, empower and unite communities by using traditional and non-traditional forms of art.‍‍

Our Story

FOKUS increases the awareness of and access to art disciplines by providing unique ways for people of all ages to access the arts. Our primary goal is not to create the next famous artists but simply to allow individuals to understand what their creative talents are and apply this knowledge to their educational, professional and personal life.

We create and expose communities to the arts through arts education, community art events and an online magazine.

This helps people understand their innate creativity and develop their talents so that they can maximize their potential for future success. The arts teach you how to create something from nothing and this innovative trait is what leads to success.
