Making the Arts Accessible
Starting Arts provides hands-on arts education in dance, music, theatre and visual arts, classes taught by skilled professional artists eager to share their expert knowledge and passion with students.
Serving Our Community
Since 2000, Starting Arts has established itself as a leader in the local arts community. As part of our mission, we have been dedicated to making arts education accessible to all students throughout the Bay Area, regardless of ethnicity, ability or disability, national origin, race, skill level, background, religion, gender, sexual orientation or financial means. We have instituted a number of programs to foster diversity and understanding, as well as outreach to the under-served among our youth. On September 1, 2020, Starting Arts began delivering FREE arts education programs to Bay Area Title I schools whose children would otherwise not receive arts programming. In addition, we have increased the number of scholarships we offer to deserving students attending our Studio and Onsite School Arts Programs by 20%. Read More
