Patrons of the Arts is a vital parent organization that supports all aspects of the arts: instrumental music, vocal music, theatre, dance, photography, film production, technical theatre, painting, drawing and sculpture. The Patrons are responsible for coordinating volunteers for all arts performances and exhibits, working with the Arts Producer to organize events and receptions, and assisting arts faculty in various ways.
