An arts education stewarded by a combination of classroom teachers, arts teachers, parents and a collaborative arts community guarantees student access to a world of creative thinking, learning and growing. Through our Arts Community Network, LAUSD supports organizations that enhance our students’ arts education experience. When we send professional teaching artists directly into the classroom, it transforms the learning environment. When students visit a museum, theater, concert hall, or cultural institution, they deepen their understanding of our city and our world.
