Welcome to The Arlington Arts League!
The Arlington Arts League, Inc. was approved by the State of Texas and the Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit 501 (c) (3) arts organization on November 20, 1996. The organization promotes and supports the visual and performing arts, art education, cultural events, volunteer participation in the Art Docent and ArtReach programs, and other special community service projects.
The Arts League's programs and community service projects are funded by an annual fundraiser and individual gifts. Programs supported by the League include but are not limited to the following:
Art Docent Program: A program to recruit and train docents to assist with art education in the Arlington Independent School District's (AISD) 5th & 6th grades. Informative training sessions are held monthly (Sept. - April) on pre-selected works of art. The Arts League provides limited funds for resources and materials. All Art Docents receive Honorary Memberships to the Arlington Arts League.
ArtReach Program: A program designed to make the arts accessible to young and old alike through events at retirement centers, children's activity centers, and shelters. Presentations include art demonstrations, "hands-on" art projects, musical performances, and field trips to performing arts productions.
Scholarship Program: Scholarships are awarded to students enrolled in the Fine Arts Programs at UTA, TCC Southeast Campus, and graduating seniors from Arlington High Schools entering into a Fine Arts Program. Winners are chosen through auditions and judging conducted each spring by the League. All scholarships are funded by the League's annual fundraiser and memorial scholarships presented by benefactors.
ARTS, Etc.: A community newsletter (published quarterly) which provides information on League news, an Arts Directory outlining information for other arts organizations in the community, and a Calendar of Events for local arts groups.
Membership is open to all who are interested in the objectives of the organization. Meetings and special events are held September through May for members and prospective members.
