Our K-12 programs are designed to meet California State Learning Standards and the Common Core curriculum. You can skip directly to the areas above or link to the residency packages we developed as an Arts Community Partnership member (ACPN). Any fees listed are for Los Angeles USD schools only. The Children’s Creative Project for Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo are in their catalogue. Please contact us for others. From the day our company was founded, we have delivered on a commitment to provide world-class educational programming to children, teachers and working professionals.

- We were a founding member of:
       The Arts Community Partnership Network of the Los Angeles Unified School District 
       We are members of their new Arts Community Network (ACN)
- Here are our professional development offers (2016-17 PD’s)
See a list of our educational sponsors:  (2017-2018)
For a number of years we were part of a steering committee to examine ways other cities interwove the
       schools arts teaching with those of the professional and community partners.

The LA County Arts Education Resource Directory (Arts for All), included 10 vetted programs for students and 2 new ones for Professional Development, but in June 2017 they changed to a new website called The Los Angeles County Arts Ed Collective. When you go to the site and click on Community Arts Educators you get a picture of us teaching at an earlier partnership. To access our page there, go to for all our partners and overview of our programs. Although those below were pulled out on their old site, I have dismantled  the links but left the names so you can see some of our themes. When there is time, I will link them to pdf’s with specifics.
