Why it's important

supporting artS education

The arts are essential. They teach students innumerable lessons—practice makes perfect, small differences can have large effects, collaboration leads to creativity. The arts also teach children that there are several paths to take when approaching problems and that all problems can have more than one solution.

We offer significant arts education programming during our annual festival, through summer camps, conversations, applied art classes and more.  Our artists in residents give back to the community by offering performances, masterclasses and open studio sessions – both on our campus and throughout the region.

Field trips are available year-round to visit our Skyspace while also enhancing the experience by offering other curriculum content including environmental science, astronomy, and community development.

opportunities for kids

We offer classes, camps and field trips – from the age of 3 to internships for College students.

Additionally, we offer Toddler Time sessions for children aged 3-5 and their parents/guardians.
