Doing Well and Doing Good by Doing Art
“The PAL program has been helpful in identifying arts resources in our state. It has given us a venue through which we have explored various implementation strategies. PAL helped us inventory our own skills—an amazing process!! And then gave us the opportunity to really plan activities to support our dreams.”
