Board of Directors

TACHP’s talented Board of Directors focuses their efforts on marketing and fundraising so that TACHP can continue to fill and offer the large amount of ever increasing scholarship requests from youth, teens, adults and seniors. This year the Board was able to assist in fulfilling 280 scholarships from over 350 requests and bring the joy of art to our scholarship recipients, TACHP members, students, and supporters who come from over 40 surrounding Chicagoland communities to imagine, enjoy and create at TACHP.
