At TOSS our goal is to offer an art experience that will have a lasting impact at an affordable rate. We want to give every child a chance to experience the discipline of thinking through the art of making. Studies show that art education equips students with better problem-solving skills who test higher in every subject at school. Our emphasis is to cultivate sophisticated learners using the visual arts as our guide; we offer a wide range of tools, and on any given day you might see the unfolding of theatrical productions, animation, or product design. We are invested in developing the skill sets and abilities of students in our community, who will someday be the next generation of entrepreneurs, professionals, practitioners, and leaders.
