PROGRAMS

Precious Gems Project creates opportunities for young people to have art experiences  through sponsorship to attend existing education programs in their community as well as partnerships and collaboration with organizations to create and deliver programs where no arts programs exist.

We continue to look for additional opportunities to increase our programming and include additional forms of creative expression i.e. drumming, music, dance, and spoken word.

Please contact us at [email protected] if you have suggestions for our programs or would like to collaborate with us.
