Arts Teach/Arts Connect

Through the Center’s Arts Teach and Arts Connect programs, teaching artists representing music, theater, dance, and visual arts from a wide variety of cultures bring hands-on learning activities directly to students, teachers, and community members, incorporating the arts into core subjects. These artists bring the arts to schools and community organizations throughout Southern California, including Children’s Hospital Orange County, Radiant Health Centers, and Camp Pendleton. Arts Teach and Arts Connect reach approximately 230,000 students, teachers, and adults in nearly 250 schools and partner organizations across 5 Southern California counties.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Launched in February 2017, the School of Dance and Music for Children with Disabilities enables all children – both with physical and cognitive disabilities and without– to enjoy creative expression while developing key skills and provides parents with a vital support network. It is the only all-inclusive arts program of its kind in Southern California. Through off-site partnerships with United Cerebral Palsy of Orange County, CHOC, Easterseals OC, and many more, the Center brings classes directly to the community, in addition to those held on the Center’s campus. To date, nearly 750 students have been served across 4 Southern California counties.

Population(s) Served
Adolescents

The Center’s Disney Musicals in Schools program provides 4 underserved Title I elementary schools per year lacking access to the arts with a 17-week, free-of-charge musical theater residency that develops sustainable theater programs. The program provides students the opportunity to express themselves creatively in a safe environment and integrates the arts into core curriculum at the elementary school level. Public performances are held at all participating school sites. At the end of its 5th year, over 2,400 students and 120 teachers have been transformed by musical theater experiences in 20 school sites across Orange County.

Population(s) Served
Non-adult children

Each year, On Stage at the Center buses in approximately 9,000 students and teachers from around Orange County to the Center for thrilling and memorable performances, often marking a child’s first experience with live performing arts. These fun and captivating presentations are created especially for young audiences and their parents and teachers, in the hopes that they will serve as a starting point for a life-long appreciation of the arts. Customized instructional materials, designed by Center staff to meet state educational standards, are provided to classes prior to each performance to maximize the educational experience.

Population(s) Served
Non-adult children

Arts: Avenues to Learning, a collaboration between the Center and California State University, Fullerton (CSUF), helps over 300 aspiring teachers per year grasp the academic and emotional benefits of the arts in education and gives them clear and applicable methods to use in their future classrooms. Training sessions focus on all core subject areas with the goal of providing deeper meaning and improving learning and teaching capacities by using the arts as a catalyst. Held on the Center’s campus and at school sites around the county, the program begins in the fall and continues into the school’s spring semester for a total of six full-day sessions.
