Access the Arts was established in 2018 and certified by the State of Ohio as a non-profit. It is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Our primary purpose is to provide opportunities that unite the community and offer a platform for those who would like to share their talents to inspire others in all art forms. We strive to provide an exposure to the arts and interactive opportunities for the elderly, the disabled and the underprivileged, and to promote appreciation for and education in the fine and performing arts for people of all ages. We are funded by grants, corporate donations and contributions from individuals. If you would like to support our mission, please click the Donation tab above.
We are providing music and art therapy for the youth at the Medina County Juvenile Detention Center. We also provide music and art lessons to afterschool students at the Lodi Family Center, as well as arts projects for the Medina County Home and the ACP Day Center. We host and fund several hands-on educational and interactive concerts in our community that are inclusive of all who want to participate. The arts help us to celebrate differences, encourage creativity, and unite us with a common inspiration.
Many exciting events are coming to Sharon Center this summer!
