Friends of Arts Education at the Cerritos Center It’s for the kids!

It is our belief that when you bring the arts into children’s lives, you give them new ways to see the world.

The Friends of Arts Education is a non-profit organization that recognizes the arts as a vital and indispensable part of a comprehensive education. We strive to ensure that all children in our communities have an opportunity to experience the power and beauty of the performing arts.

The arts are an integral part of cultural literacy; they encourage creativity, critical thinking and problem solving. The arts enable students to build self-esteem and self-discipline as well as teach cooperation and effective expression. Research shows that integrating the arts into the school curriculum improves academic achievement, motivates attendance, increases test scores and promotes involvement.

All our programs are provided free of charge to schools and we serve over 100,000 children, teachers and families every year!

The Friends programs are designed to support the California State Board of Education Visual and Performing Arts standards for kindergarten through grade twelve.

We offer: o Daytime Educational Performances by world-class artists o Professional Development Workshops for teachers o Creative Expressions program for students o Performing Arts Scholarships for high school seniors o Artists in the Classroom o Family Arts Festival o Art S.M.A.R.T. activities for at-risk youth detainees
