The arts are essential to stimulating creativity and developing innovative thinkers who will be our nation’s future citizens and leaders. But many young people in our community are underserved in their arts education and lack access to arts enrichment outside of school. ASAP connects 1st–8th graders in the heart of the city of Des Moines, Iowa, with challenging, enriching arts experiences in a structured, supportive environment. ASAP is the only organization of its kind in Des Moines, dedicated to providing access to the arts for underserved but deserving young people who demonstrate talent, interest, or need for arts enrichment. ASAP provides quality instruction in a broad range of arts, all supplies, exhibition/performance experience, snacks and transportation to and from the program site downtown—an invaluable key to accessibility.
