The mission of Schoodic Arts for all is to coalesce various artists and community members to develop an arts center providing year round cultural events and activities that hold value for residents of our community. To integrate various organizations in our community in order to explore and preserve our cultural heritage. To encourage participants of all ages to express themselves creatively and gain a lifelong appreciation for the arts and creative spirit. To celebrate creativity through a wide range of cultural workshops, events and performances.
