The Fine Arts Academy is a community service, outreach and partnering program of our church. The success of the Academy depends on connecting each student with the right instructor at a place and time that works for everyone. As Director of the Academy, Denise Burcham recruits and manages instructors, oversees fee payment, manages scheduling of students, and facilitates production of Academy events throughout the year. Denise also teaches violin at the Academy. In worship at Smoke Rise, Denise serves as director of the handbell choir, a frequent violinist and as a member of the choir.
