About Us

Unlock your potential through the arts at Fortress Arts Academy. We are committed to encouraging experiential access to the arts, as well as exploring community development. We empower our students to ask insightful questions, explore disciplinary boundaries, and confront conventional ways of thinking. We also use the arts as a bridge to neighborhood improvements, including mosaic murals.
