ARTS ARE ESSENTIAL, LEARNING IS CRITICAL,
AND ART IN LEARNING IS TRANSFORMATIVE.
WHAT WE DO
Arts Education Connection San Diego provides high-quality education programs that inspire students of all ages to reach their full potential through the arts. Our professional teaching artists come to your school or community venue to engage your students in learning an art form!
The arts engage, elevate, inspire, and transform. We believe that communities thrive through the arts, and that children discover their own creativity and new possibilities as they learn through the arts.
We offer tailored arts education programs and packages for schools, districts, and community organizations that can include performances, workshops & residencies, family engagement activities and professional development.
Imagine students being introduced to the power of an art form through a performance….
Followed by a series of weekly classes with a professional artist wherein they learn how to engage artistically, building skills and expressing themselves…
Culminating in a powerful student sharing at a dynamic family arts night event…
All while classroom teachers learn how to enhance their teaching through the arts simply by being present during the classes or by participating in professional development workshops designed just for them.
We develop long-term relationships with high caliber, professional teaching artists to provide arts programs to K-12 students, families, and communities. We are a multi-disciplinary organization, offering programs in dance, theater, music, visual art, and literary arts. Our artists provide opportunities for students to engage, imagine, make connections, understand, inquire, and most importantly, CREATE!
Since 1963, Arts Education Connection San Diego has delivered a rich variety of arts education programs to San Diego students and communities through performances, workshops, residencies and professional learning opportunities, connecting young people to their cultural roots and creative wings.

“I have never seen my students more enthused or happy. Now they have a way to express themselves. Children that I have never seen speak are empowered, and teachers love it. This program provides a way for the students to have a break in their daily struggles.”
