Art has the role in education of helping children become more like themselves instead of more like everyone else – Sydeny Gurewitz Clemens
The Arts for Youth Program brings customizable creative, visual and performing arts experience to schools throughout the Southern California area, helping fill the gap left by budget cuts and resource challenges in K-12 education. Studies show that students who have access to the arts have better academic results, better workforce opportunities, and more civic engagement. Art education helps to develop creativity and problem-solving skills, improves judgement, encourages inventiveness, and helps to foster innovative thinkers – all important attributes for future success. Accelerate’s Arts for Youth Program helps young people gain educational and personal growth through classes in music, theatre, dance and visual arts such as photography, painting, film making and graphic design. We offer workshops, after school classes, summer school and high school credit program options, to fit your student needs.
