The Arts Academy was founded in 2013 in order to provide our Club youth in San Pedro and Wilmington with expert instruction options in fine arts, music, dance, recording arts, film production, photography, 3D modeling, video game design and graphic arts.
Going beyond our group arts and crafts program, our fine arts instruction helps our more talented youth develop their skills. Expert fine arts education for youth, ages 6 – 18, focuses on output and artistic skill building with professional tools and creative inspiration from master works. Artistic representations from several genres and time periods are studied to inspire students to create their own unique works.
Our music program has always excelled in providing quality education. Instruction from expert musicians offers real world performance skill building along with lessons in reading and writing music. Lessons range from private instruction to opportunities to participate in a classical ensemble, jazz band or rock band.
Starting with ballet star, Misty Copeland, our Club has always had a love of dance. Instruction for youth includes classical ballet at the Elementary level while teens are given the opportunity to explore other genres such as Contemporary, Hip-Hop and Latin.
Our Digital Arts Program has opportunities for students in the fields of 3D animation, photography, film, and graphic arts. With the increase in these career fields, members get exposure to these disciplines and others like game design and coding.
