Arts for All

This summer, we look forward to welcoming students to our campus in-person for the first time in more than a year. We, and our community, could not be more excited! After a year spent isolated and in front of screens, young people are yearning for interaction and creative engagement.

240 diverse youth will attend 10 weeks of arts camps, expressing their creativity through visual arts, music, creative writing, animation and more, mentored by professional teaching artists. High school students will gain valuable leadership skills serving as camp assistants. Our COVID safety plan will ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.

As always, we remain dedicated to full inclusion. With your support, these enriching experiences are affordable and accessible to everyone regardless of economic circumstance.

Help us ensure that EVERY child has the benefit of high quality arts education with your tax-deductible contribution to Arts for All Campaign.
