COMPAS is a statewide, non-profit arts organization that sparks students’ imaginations, brings creativity into the lives of older adults, and inspires people to create. At its core, COMPAS brings art to people. Professional artists work alongside students, teachers, senior citizens, patients and sometimes just passersby to help them discover their own creativity and learn a new skill.
