SMARTS (Schools Majoring in the ARTS)
Our SMARTS program is an initiative of Seark Concert Association striving to ensure every student in every grade (K-12th) in our seven county region of the state are exposed to high quality, professional, fine arts experiences. Seark fundraises, books, and schedules SMARTS performances in each school for no cost to the schools. The vision of the SMARTS program is to enrich each child's academic experience and growth by providing exposure to and experience of the arts, an important but endangered area of study.
Currently, SMARTS are in each school district in our seven counties, and we bring age-appropirate, engaging programming to each grade level. These opportunities include: fairy tale puppetry, professional musicians, the award-winning UAM jazz band, and even field trips to see the professional ballet in Little Rock.
SMARTS is primarily funded by partners within the counties in which we serve. With your generous donation, you can be a large part of bringing the arts into the schools in your own county.
