Continuing Education strives to make arts learning opportunities accessible to students from all economic backgrounds. Whenever possible, we offer tuition scholarships to those demonstrating financial need.

“Existing in a lower-income family, it is difficult for interests and talents to be served or grown. Attending a class on scholarship offered our son not only a great experience, but also a place of pride knowing he was deserving of the opportunity.”
