From Durham Arts Council Parents: Excerpt from parent letter. Shortly after moving here 10 years ago, we enrolled our three older boys in the DAC summer camp. Our oldest child has autism and his participation in summer camp lead to a lasting interest in the arts, including performances as part of Art Ventures through Durham Parks and Recreation and becoming a member of the Drama Club in high school. Now that son is a college freshman at UNC-Greensboro [ . . . ]. Not surprisingly, he has chosen theatre and photography as his concentration; which we attribute to the foundation provided to him in early childhood while attending the DAC. Our 15 year-old, Micka’il is a fiber artist and jewelry designer. He was influenced by many of the professional artists who were his instructors at DAC during the summer [and . . .] nurtured his creativity and helped him to perfect his craft. In fact, this year he was one of the 148 juried visual artists accepted into CenterFest 2017; and to our knowledge, he was the youngest artist at CenterFest. He acknowledged that his time at DAC over the years had come full circle when he made it into CenterFest! Subsequently, he is inspired to reach back and help other budding young artists who enroll in summer courses at the Durham Arts Council. To quote our youngest son, Idris, now 7 years old and a DAC student for the past two years, “Durham Arts Council is my favorite school. I want to go there forever!” His enjoyment and enthusiasm about the arts generally, and Durham Arts Council specifically, are simply joyous. We fully support the Durham Arts council and hope that it’s wonderful, accessible, and engaging programs continue well into the future. The Durham Arts Council is a fantastic resource for the community and its families. Sincerely, Drs. Dwayne Brandon and Baiyina Muhammad Parents of the Brandon boys TABLE OF CONTENTS Arlene Hyman Visual Arts Scholarship Fund Arlene Hyman, always a lover of the arts, was a member of the Pastel Societies of New Jersey and North Carolina.
