Our goal at Starting Arts is to offer professional arts instruction, both during the school day and after school, to every child in all of the San Francisco Bay Area communities.
As educators we understand that each school’s culture is unique. Consequently we tailor every arts program to fit the needs of the individual school. To find out more about how Starting Arts programs can work at your school, please contact Starting Arts Executive Director, Ann Watts.

Starting Arts provides Before- and After-School Arts Programs on school sites throughout the Bay Area. If you are interested in bringing the arts to your school, please review the general information below.
Typical Program Length: Between 8-12 weeks
Times per Week: Typically programs run 1-2 days a week
Class Length: 1.5-2 hours
Grades: Any grade levels may participate. We encourage grouping the students in grades K-2 and grades 3-5.
Costs and Funding Options:
If the School / PTA or District is providing all the funding there will be a deposit of $500 at the signing of the contract with the remaining amount (50%) due at the beginning of the classes. Using this format, there is no minimum number of students and a maximum of 40 students that can participate in the program. The school would collect all enrollment fees.
If students are providing all of the funding for the program, the cost per student would be based on program selection. We would need a minimum of 25 enrolled students.
This proposal does not include facilities fees. Any facilities fees charged to Starting Arts by districts or schools will be added to the fees listed in this proposal. Any facilities fees charged by the district will be passed on to the participants via higher enrollment costs
