Infinity Visual and Performing Arts, Inc. creates and sustains an environment in which young people, based solely on their desire to participate, can grow, learn and lead through active participation in the visual and performing arts.
Infinity Visual and Performing Arts, Inc. celebrated 17 years of providing quality arts programming to Chautauqua County in 2015. Through a variety of opportunities each year, Infinity programming reaches over 2,000 students annually. These opportunities are provided through on site programs such as private lessons, group classes, performances, workshops, summer camps, and events, as well as off-site contracted programs including partnerships with in school and after-school programs, Resource Centers, community outreach programs, and more.
Students participate with varied program activities that allow them to stretch their minds, explore their interests, and become well rounded, cultured, and knowledgeable in their craft. They spend time creating music and art under the guidance of mentors and arts professionals, and also collaborating with other creative students, exploring many facets of the arts, and being encouraged to advocate for themselves and their ideas. Through these class experiences, students not only create positive relationships with adult mentors, but with their peers. They learn valuable hard and soft skills that will prepare them for their futures, explore various career opportunities, and gain practical experience in a safe, supportive environment.
Infinity strongly believes that the more opportunities students have to explore and experience the arts and work with a mentor, the less likely they are to become involved in risky behaviors, and the more likely they are to make positive choices that will impact their future in a bright and exciting way.
