The Legacy Arts Project is a community arts organization that focuses on arts of the African diaspora by way of study, practice, and performance. The mission of the Legacy Arts Project is to preserve the history and traditions of African art as presented throughout the diaspora through study, practice, and presentation. The organization utilizes art as a catalyst for learning about self, others, and the world at large, encouraging exploration and expression through creativity. Students work with instructors to engage a blending of creativity and academics, stimulating them to learn by doing. The students’ work consists of music, movement, visual art, stop motion animation, and gardening, melding science, technology, arts, and reading.
