Sitar Arts Center

Sitar Arts Center brings its diverse community together to give underserved children and youth the opportunity to explore and study the visual and performing arts in an afterschool safe haven. Sitar Arts Center provides after-school, weekend and summer classes in the visual arts, music, drama, dance, digital arts and creative writing to over 700 students a year. The Center partners with local volunteer artists and arts organizations to provide comprehensive arts education, nurturing relationships and high expectations that enable young people to better know and express themselves as they discover and develop their artistic gifts.

In addition to classes for school aged-children through adults in Arts Afterschool, the Center offers Early Childhood Arts, intensive programs for teens, the annual summer musical, Camp Sitar, the Instrumental Music Academy, and a Performance and Gallery Series, exposing our students and the greater community to a variety of artists and art forms at a professional level.
