Carpe Artista provides artistic training, leadership development and community engagement opportunities for artists in Smyrna, North Rutherford County, and surrounding areas. We create and manage a wide range of art related classes, events, performances and camps for local residents of all ages, interests and skill levels. We are also heavily involved with the support and coordination of festivals, concerts, shows and other public cultural events. These events engage local businesses and industry to partner for cultural development while allowing Carpe to promote the creative arts to the community.
Carpe Artista achieves our mission through the strict adherence to our four core values of character, calling, craft and community:
- Character — We believe in developing genuine fidelity to principles of morality and compassion in all our activities through consistency in action, thought, attitude, and respect for every individual we engage. We submit ourselves to these directives of character as an organization; from the student on up to the CEO.
- Calling — We have an unwavering commitment to use our creativity as a positive contribution to the world around us. We challenge our students to surpass us in this commitment.
- Craft — We dare ourselves and our students to reach beyond perceived accepted boundaries and accomplish proficiency in technique and taste, permitting them entrance before listeners otherwise unattainable. We promote creativity, commitment, and competence in every student we serve.
- Community — We are responsible to serve the local communities in which we operate by being goodwill ambassadors for the arts; a resource of arts education and character development; a source of community enriching entertainment.
Carpe Artista also provides arts education support and services to several public and private schools and organizations in Smyrna and North Rutherford County. Carpe Artista is a 501c3 non-profit organization based in Smryna, TN.
