• About Us

Arts Partners

    The arts ask us to involve our whole selves, stretching and challenging our sensibilities and critical thinking skills, and encourage personal enrichment. The arts are consistent with and integral to the American ideals of individual life, liberty and happiness. In an arts curriculum enhanced by learning with and attending the performances of our community arts providers, students grow in their relationship and understanding of their place within our great city, our nation and the world. When community teaching artists come directly to the classroom, it becomes a vibrant learning environment where ongoing access to the artistic and cultural treasures of the Los Angeles community is no longer unattainable.
    An arts education stewarded by a combination of classroom teachers, arts teachers, parents and a collaborative arts community guarantees students access to a world of creative thinking, learning and growing.
