The California Center for the Arts, Escondido Foundation Education Department offers a variety of entertainment and engaging programs for students, teachers and the general public. 

In partnership with local arts organizations, we offer programming taught by expert teaching artists that includes: arts education residencies, field trip opportunities, youth theater performances, arts workshops and student art exhibitions.

Our Philosophy

Art inspires creativity and innovation in all aspects of our lives. It teaches us to think outside the box, to approach problems with an open mind, and to embrace the beauty of diversity. It sparks imagination in our children, nurturing their creative potential and preparing them for a future that demands innovative thinking. Art encourages empathy and understanding, helping us bridge divides and build a more compassionate society.
