More than 7,000 children’s lives have been impacted by the work of Arkansas Learning Through the Arts and, due to the non-profit’s growth, six new board member’s are being ushered in.  
ALTTA is welcoming new board members who are excited to join their ever-expanding operations and the six community leaders are becoming oriented into an organization committed to inspiring young people to learn and achieve academically.    
Improving children’s ability to read, write and communicate is the focus of the ALTTA workshops that employ the arts as a means of triggering a child’s imagination and interest.
Tom Bryant, ALTTA vice president, said “The new board members have exceptional talents and experience necessary to achieve continuing success and planned growth.”       
Suzanne Kuch, Steve Lux, Lindsey Ray, Amy Thomason, Brenda Sellers and Donna Toney have expressed their strong interest in ALTTA’s mission and service to schools and our children’s success. Their skills will allow ALTTA to expand its services within the Hot Springs area and to other areas of the state.
The thousands of young students that have been reached by ALTTA primarily reside in Garland and Saline counties, through in-classroom arts workshops that connect with the curriculum.
Professional teaching artists collaborate with teachers by developing and presenting carefully designed programs that supplement and enrich the students’ learning.    
Teachers can select programs from over 50 choices that align with their classroom needs.
