||The Arts of the U.P. student organization consists of students who are willing to take a stand for art programs such as music, visual art, theater, poetry, dance, photography as well as a few others that exist in public school systems and universities. It is our goal to assist and help fund art programs within schools in the upper peninsula of Michigan as they are often short funded or even cut. Students may use their skills to put on fun and creative fundraisers including art shows, live performances, poetry slamming, and so much more to benefit our local school art programs. Students with interest do not have to have any background or experience in any of the arts whatsoever, the only requirement is an open mind and the ambition to influence change in our community through volunteer work.
