General Information

We believe every child deserves the transformational spark the arts ignite! 

The Community School of the Arts offers three sessions of classes yearly.  The Fall and Spring Sessions are thirteen weeks long and the Summer Session which offers week-long camps and nine week long classes. 

Children as young as two years old may take group classes in creative writing, dance, drama, music, and visual art. Private instruction is available in vocal and instrumental music. CSA classes meet after school and on Saturdays.  During the summer, full day, week long Summer Camps offer outstanding opportunities for children to express themselves.

By partnering with Kansas City's best professional artists, students at the Community School of the Arts are encouraged to discover and develop their own unique talents through our high quality classes, camps and private instruction.

  • "The work these men (Recipe Poetry Guild) do with my students is amazing I am continually surprised that my traditionally mute students spark up and open up in these workshops. Also, I want to say that could see these gentlemen as visting artists in residence in the KCMO school district. They are so constructive and positive."    KC Public Schools Teacher
