The Links support of the arts can be traced to our cultured co-founder Margaret Roselle Hawkins. Her innate artistic talent, discovered at a young age, earned her a four-year scholarship to the Women’s School of Design, later known as the Moore Institute of Art.
Her passion for creative expression later led to her appointment as an art teacher, and helped give root to the establishment of The Arts facet in 1964 at the 14th National Assembly.
The goal of The Arts facet is to increase and expand art activity, and elevate our programs through arts integration and effectively create an arts renaissance within our organization and programmatic efforts.
In partnership with the Waterbury Palace Theater, our students in Granville Academy participate in various activities at the theater. Our Arts Facet team also works with the girls at Girls, Incorporated on beautification project, plantings and sharing the fruit of their labor with the residents of a local convalescence home.
Our students at Crosby High School participated in the Young Master Writers Program. Through this program students worked with chapter members on their original works of poetry, writings and prose.
