~WHAT IS NECAC (NORTHEAST CULTURAL ARTS COUNCIL, INC.)?

NECAC is a community-based, non-profit organization, chartered by the State of Texas, May 1984. Its mission is to encourage, foster, and support the growth and development of the arts and humanities for the youth of Houston; to identify, develop, and nurture the artistic talents of our youth; and to provide a pathway to further appreciation of the cultural fine arts. NECAC's policies and operating procedures are governed by an active board of professional advisors and directors.


~WHAT ARE NECAC's GOALS?

  • To provide early developmental experiences and a strong appreciation for the cultural and performing arts

  • To identify and nurture the artistic talents of gifted and highly motivated students

  • To provide the highest quality of creative experiences to enhance students' self-esteem and confidence

  • To provide a safe, creative learning environment for "latch key kids" and other socio-economically disadvantaged students

  • To promote further study and provide a continuum for students participating in fine arts programs in magnet schools

~WHO MAKES UP THE INSTRUCTIONAL STAFF?

The instructional staff are professional practitioners who are teachers as well as performers. They bring years of experience to the Arts Enrichment Program. They are trained, caring instructors whose keen artistic insights can identify, discover and nurture the God-given talents and abilities of gifted participants.

Along with professional instructions, the young participants go on field trips to museums, art galleries, theaters and attend on-campus concerts. They learn to be a good audience for live performances.

At the end of the program, all students participate in a gala production that is open to the public.
