Wesleyan Arts Alliance

The Arts Alliance is a parent organization that celebrates and supports Wesleyan's commitment to the arts. We strive to help facilitate the expression of individuality and support students in the variety of artistic endeavors available at our school. We share in the belief that art is an important part of every child's development and of the school community.

Mission Statement

Believing that God has blessed each individual with creative gifts, the Arts Alliance seeks to nurture and encourage each student in the discovery of their talents to bring glory to God.

What We Do

Our goal is to provide financial, physical, and spiritual support to all students in Kindergarten through 12th grade as they participate in both visual and performing art activities. Each year, we raise funds through membership receipts, the Artist Market, Student Art sales, and advertisements; all funds are returned in their entirety to the Fine Arts Program.
