School and Community Programs

Arts integration programs to inspire student learning.






KCYA's School and Community Programs works with a roster of nearly 150 artists to provide dynamic and educational arts programs to children in schools, libraries, community centers, and hospitals throughout the greater Kansas City area.


With performances, residencies, workshops, and after-school programs in nearly every artistic discipline and covering numerous academic subjects KCYA's School and Community Programs reinforce core curriculum as well as cultivate artistic expression; unleashing ideas, creativity, and individual problem solving skills.



Despite the challenges presented by Covid-19, our mission continues to inspire us. We are determined to find innovative ways to connect children with arts experiences wherever – and however - their schooling is taking place.
