The Indiana Fine Arts Academy recognizes the power each person, child or adult, possesses to positively affect change in their community.

Utilizing the arts as a catalyst, IFAA volunteers bring the beauty of the fine arts to their surrounding neighborhoods.

Volunteer opportunities include providing fine arts programming for area senior living communities, early childhood programs, hospitals and more!


Ethan Watts

Community Volunteer Coordinator

Ethan is an only child and enjoys all the attention he receives from his parents. He spends most of his free time hanging out with his beloved dog, Mocha, who is a faithful companion of almost 6 years. He is in the 8th grade at North Point Homeschool Classes and is grateful for the wonderful teachers who challenge him in ways he would not be otherwise. He plays keys in the student worship band at North Point and hopes to help better establish the team in the coming years.

Ethan has been a member of the worship team at the Church For The Nations in Carmel since before 9 years of age and loves to worship God through music. He writes songs of praises, melodies to the scriptures, and songs that are simply funny. 

Besides coordinating the community outreach at IFAA, Ethan also volunteers at the Community Hospital North on the 2nd and 4th Wed. of the month during the lunch hour. 

In recent years, Ethan has been receiving invitations to play at funerals, weddings, and other celebrations for friends, family, and others. It is amazing how God expresses His love through music in these times.

Last year, Ethan was awarded the first place at the Indiana Federation of Music Club and he counts it an honor to be selected among so many well qualified contestants. Through the Indiana Federation of Music Club, Ethan was awarded a scholarship to the Butler Piano Camp and was deeply grateful for the delightful experience. Ethan has been studying under Mrs. Lorenzoni at the IFAA since he was 5 years old.

This year, Ethan and his parents are planning on trips to new places, looking into picking up a new activity (thinking indoor rock climbing), and working on a project that could reward Ethan with the puppy of his dreams.
