In School Programming


In School Programs are equal parts arts + curriculum.
Arts integration programs utilize the art form to engage students and help them learn.



School and Community Programs (SCP) - through professional teaching artists, we provide schools, libraries, and community centers with classroom workshops, artist residencies and school performance assemblies. These programs use the arts to engage students and enhance the learning of numerous academic subjects. Learn more...






Arts Partners (AP) - building upon our SCP program, we partner with 15 premier arts organizations and specific school districts to provide arts-in-education programs across the entire district. The AP program allows participating school districts to access the best arts education from our partners, as well as from KCYA, through one contract with coordination and planning assistance from our Arts Partners Coordinator.

Programs in Our Facility


Community School of the Arts (CSA) programs are classes and camps
designed to help children learn and grow in specific skills related to their choosen art form.
Arts education programs develop creativity, self-expression, and
self-discipline among other life skills.



The Community School of the Arts (CSA) offers camps and classes in dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts. Through our professional teaching artists, CSA students are encouraged to explore and develop their own creative talents and abilities. Through our generous donors, the CSA provides financial assistance to many students who would not otherwise be able to participate. Learn more...
