Providing Opportunities to Experience the Arts

Everyone in the Tri-Valley should have the opportunity to experience the arts at whatever age and whatever level they are. Livermore Arts offers educational activities and classes, performances at schools and at the Bankhead Theater, and free events for the whole family. For students, there are also workshops and master classes with visiting artists. Portions of these activities are underwritten through generous contributions and matching gifts to our education fund.

EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH ACTIVITIES
LVPAC funds a number of cultural arts programs, free family events, workshops and master classes and in-school performances throughout the year. For example, the East Bay Jazz High School All-Stars Program, is fully funded by Livermore Arts. The East Bay Jazz High School All-Stars is an after-school program for high-caliber musical performance and education for high school jazz musicians. Portions of these activities are underwritten through generous contributions and matching gifts to our education fund.

Help us share the performing arts with children. To learn more about these programs that support school and family performances and student tickets or to donate by phone or mail, please contact our Education staff at 925-583-2312 or email us for assistance.
