P.S. ARTS is proud to host Family Art Nights at our partner schools-free for our students and their families! We believe that the best way for parents to gain an appreciation for the benefits of arts education is through participation in art-making with their children. Apparently our schools agree, because these events draw crowds of 50-250 people and we need your help!

P.S. ARTS’ mission is to improve the lives of children by providing arts education to underserved public schools and communities. It is the only organization in Southern and Central California that provides yearlong arts education in dance, music, theater, and visual arts to every child in a school during the regular school day.
