The Youth Arts is Fired Up for Next Session Enrollment 4/10

All Youth 5-18 Can Sign Up for 2 Free Classes Each!

PASO ROBLES, CA (April 1, 2021) - Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation is proud to announce the growing return of its in-person, Visual & Performing Arts Program.

Due to the COVID-19, the Center was forced to close its doors to nearly 400 young dancers, musicians, artists, actors, and a staff of 22. It was a long and arduous road back to live classes and the Youth Arts is adding more opportunities back with every new session. Families don’t miss out and stay tuned!

“The creative staff is excited to help students express themselves through piano, ballet, band, acting, songwriting and much more. Exposing young people to new artforms allows them to find something they are good at, find their voices and often make like-minded friends at the same time. That newfound passion opens up their worlds and the sky is truly the limit. We are so honored to help students make positive choices, stay in school and go on to higher education. The Youth Arts is a special place because the program is open to all students who wish to enroll, and classes are always free. This eliminates financial barriers for families who might be struggling,” explains Emily Jagger, Director of Development/Interim Executive Director
