P.S. ARTS is the only artists-in-residence program in Southern and Central California providing weekly, yearlong arts education programs integrated into the regular school day. Their programs create a positive impact on the academic, social, and emotional wellbeing of the children they work with. P.S. ARTS hires and trains professional artists to develop standards-based curriculum and teach dance, music, theater, and visual arts. The organization customizes instruction to meet the specific needs of the elementary and middle schools, and all classes are in alignment with the California Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) standards.
