The West Louisville Talent and Education Center (WESTEC) was founded in 1997 to provide first-rate, professional violin instruction to students ages 3 to 18 from Russell Parkland, California, and Shawnee neighborhoods. Our mission is to provide Arts and Education Enrichment for at-risk students, using violin instruction to promote excellence in music, academic, and 21st century skills.
Our “Blue House”, our home where we provide all of our programming, is in dire need of repair. Donated to WESTEC in 1997, the building was already in need of repair, and over the years, it has had additional wear and tear, including water damage, mold, busted pipes, cracked floors, broken windows, and a battered roof. Minor repairs have been made over the years, but nothing substantial that could keep the building in a safe and stable state.
With your contribution to ArtsMatch, we can repair our building, expand the number of students we serve, and continue providing musical enrichment and a safe space for at-risk students of all ages in West Louisville.
