Segerstrom Center for the Arts

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.
