FUN FOR KIDS!
The Arts Education Program strives to expose the Chicano/Latino/Indigenous culture and heritage to the community of San Antonio and surrounding areas. We do this by offering classes that serve as a positive outlet of expression and bring together generations through the artistic outlets. Classes are offered year-round in six disciplines of the arts: Music, Visual Arts, Dance, Theatre, Media Arts and Literature. All classes are open to the community with monthly rates that vary depending on the course. All students participate in public performances and recitals during various points of the school year.
For registration information call (210) 271-3151.

SMD has been in place for more than four decades, giving children ages 5-17 a chance to work with artist-teachers in a wide variety of media — ceramics, drawing and painting, pinhole photography, silk-screening, stained glass, origami, and seasonal activities. Parents or guardians often work alongside their child.
