We are passionate about the arts and believe in the power of community. 

 

Our Mission

North Shore Arts Angels Inc. is a non-profit educational foundation established in 2014 in order to expand the role established by the Arts Angels Booster Club. Founded by a small group of parents in 2004, the Art Angels Booster Club helped to enhance arts education by providing funds to teachers in the music, fine arts and theater departments. These funds helped to pay for equipment, services and program support not covered in the school district budget. North Shore Arts Angels, Inc., was formed to carry on that tradition, as well as to further expand opportunities by creating independent arts based programs that complement and augment the districts offerings.


There is incredible power in the arts to inspire and influence.
— Julie Taymor, American Director of Theater, Art & Film
