Masterpiece is a nonprofit organization established to teach, train, and expose kids, youth, and adults in the underserved communities to the performing arts as well as visual arts. We recognize that many that we serve are very talented but lack the financial resources and sometimes transportation to get involved in the arts. Therefore, we take the arts to them by sending our instructors out into the communities to teach drama, dance, painting, sketching, writing, speaking, storytelling, music, voice, etc. in various cultures for a diverse appreciation and participation in the arts.
