Artist Support

                     

  

These last two years have been difficult for all of us in many ways.  The arts have been hit particularly hard because so much of the work we do requires physical closeness and interaction.  While prioritizing the health and safety of our participants, instructors, and staff, we also need to support our community of artists.

For that reason, we are excited to offer the Summer Academies in the Arts program once again!  It provides advanced young artists the tools they will need as they develop their technical and artistic skills in preparation for applications and audition material for college and career pursuits.  It also provides much needed employment for our team of instructors ⎼ practicing artists themselves ⎼ who saw many of their commissions, gigs, and contracts cancelled.

If you are able, please consider making a gift of any amount to support the Summer Academies in the Arts program.  Your contribution will make a significant impact by supporting the artists who make it possible.

The mission of Outreach at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts (CTSA) is to provide the community with access to the creative capital available through CTSA.

We partner with local schools and community organizations to share the talents and knowledge of our students, faculty, and staff with people of all ages. Composed of several community-minded programs, we introduce children to the arts, prepare middle and high school students for the next step in their arts education, and provide adults with active experiential immersion in the arts to help enrich lives. CTSA’s Outreach programs support the mission of the school as conduits for community engagement, fostering leadership both in the young artists who participate in them, and in the CTSA students and faculty who facilitate them.
