Denise Burnette Executive Director
Denise Burnette is a strong believer in the value of the arts. She has been a dancer and writer since her youth, and has expanded her horizons to include a variety of artistic mediums including painting, theater, drumming, and jewelry making. The positive role the arts played in her own life led her to study Psychology and the Arts in her graduate studies, with a focus on the value the arts play in fostering self-expression, healing, and empowerment.
Denise moved to Caswell County in 2016, where she lives with her husband and two children. She is honored to have the role of strengthening the arts in her own community. It is her vision to nurture creativity in all who wish to find it in themselves, to strengthen the role of the arts in the lives of our youth, to support local artists, and to provide positive exposure to the arts that inspire and empower.
CCFTA was founded in 1977 by H. Lee Fowlkes as a way to celebrate the Arts in Caswell County. Since that time, we have successfully kept the arts alive and prospering in our community.
Our mission is to sponsor and encourage cultural education and activities in Caswell County and the surrounding areas by increasing art awareness, educating our citizenry, providing positive opportunities for exposure to the arts, and nurturing local creative expression.
