Arts Education

The Gallo Center for the Arts believes that the arts are a pathway to building healthy minds, strong bodies, active learners and vibrant communities. We envision that school-aged youth will participate in an educational curriculum that promotes creative learning through cultural diversity and intellectual excellence.
