Arts Within Reach
Strathmore's Education Outreach Programs
Wonder is for everyone. Every kid has the right to experience the joy, connection and creativity that the arts provide. Strathmore is particularly committed to engaging under-served young people in music, dance, theater, and visual art. Geography or socio-economic circumstance can make it hard for children to get involved on their own, and so we offer a range of programs in our community to put the arts within reach for everyone. Projects include the Metro Arts Walk.

We rely on charitable gifts from individuals to sustain and expand our visual and performing arts experiences and arts education programs. Your gift will foster incredible social impact by allowing Strathmore to remain a strong and vibrant resource in your community.
