Segerstrom Center for the Arts

Segerstrom Center for the Arts is committed to providing all residents in this region with opportunities to enhance their knowledge of and appreciation for the performing arts. This includes students from elementary school through the university level, educators and individuals who simply want to broaden their experiences but not in a structure that is strictly academic. These programs achieve two especially important objectives: they develop the audiences of the future and, by integrating the arts into the standard curriculum, enhance learning, creative thinking, cognitive and social skills.

The Center’s Arts Teach Program features an extensive roster of more than 75 professional artists in music, dance, theater and visual arts from around the globe who specialize in performing for school assemblies, family nights, student workshops, teacher professional development and residencies. These occur at the Center, in schools and at community venues throughout Southern California. Arts Teach is an enriching arts-in-education program that provides the wonder and excitement of live performance and hands-on activities to schools and community organizations.

Italian Street Painters Residency

Program description

The Art of Street Painting (for grades K-12): Imaginative, educational and fun, these sequential workshops expose students to the art of street painting. Depending on the length and number of sessions, students may either copy work of the great masters, develop original work or produce a combination of both approaches. Mathematical and scientific concepts are used by students to measure and "grid up" a design and to discover the chemical properties and use of pigments and binders in pastels. The final lession in a series will be a daylong festival in which classes work on and complete their street paintings.
