WHAT WE DO
Arts & Creative Expression
A Place Called Home delivers the imaginative, inspirational arts programs that public schools in South Central rarely provide.
We firmly believe – and research supports – that arts education has a major impact on cognitive and social growth. It teaches children to create, to collaborate, to invent, and to innovate. And, art provides our members with access to beauty and inspiration through their own creations and those of their peers, teachers, and role models.
Our Arts and Creative Expression program:
Our Arts and Creative Expression program includes classes in fine art, dance, music and music production, theater, poetry, video and media arts, fashion design, and photography. Through lessons, projects, and field trips, our young people are exposed to a diversity of art and inspiration from across the city and around the world. We operate a beautiful performance center, dance studio, music studio, fine arts studio, digital media studio and art gallery. Our full time professional arts staff, guest instructors and partnerships provide access and the tools that empower our members to consider art a lifelong passion, and potentially a career.
All APCH Arts and Creative Expression programs meet the California State Visual and Performing Arts Standards. Interested students can apply through our membership office.
