At the Assyrian Cultural Foundation, we recognize the intrinsic value of art, and the many ways it can illuminate our inner lives and enrich our world. We also understand the resulting impact art has on a wider scale, and seek to provide opportunities for Assyrian children to experience and embrace the arts.

The Assyrian Cultural Foundation Fine Arts Program is designed to help foster an Assyrian American community that is rich with social and intellectual diversity. Our programs are designed to give our students an intensive professional education in his or her artistic craft, and to prepare each student with a solid foundation in the arts. Our courses include the practice of various mediums.

Our goal is to identify Assyrian Americans with exceptional talents at an early age, and enable them to engage their talents to become effective cultural leaders. We strive to empower Assyrian students and provide them with the tools they need to excel in pursuing artistic studies and careers. Our mission is to produce excellent Assyrian American artists.
