Providing Opportunities to Experience the Arts

Every student in the Tri-Valley should have the opportunity to experience the arts. Livermore Arts uses educational activities, performances at schools and at the Bankhead Theater, and provides free monthly events for the whole family. 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.
