Urban Arts is a multifaceted outreach program developed in partnership with select urban schools.
Arts instruction, including performances, workshops, and residencies is offered in school and after school. Urban Arts is comprised of five different programs: School Time Arts, After-school Classes, Art & Technology, Pre-professional Dance Program and the Scholarship Fund.
Since 1993, the Urban Arts Program has made arts education, performance, and hands on experiences available to more than 50,000 children who would not otherwise have had access to such programs. The philosophy of this program embodies a developmental approach to arts education which considers the physical, emotional, and artistic interests, needs, and capabilities of each student. All programming is provided at no cost to the participants and is sustained entirely by contributions from the local community and national funders.
