Yes.  I have served on our City Arts Council. I created a after-school arts enrichment program at a nearby title one school with a grant I was awarded.  I directed this program for two years. Serving children in the arts is the most rewarding experience I have ever had. I emphasized creativity rather than mastery of a style and I made sure they had high quality products so they would enjoy their work.
