Students from pre-kindergarten through college and their teachers will have opportunities to engage with the arts through student matinees, training and summer programs at the new Sandy Springs Performing Arts Center.
The newly announced initiative also will offer the greater community exposure to the arts through family oriented programming, summer arts camps, and meeting with artists to understand the creative process, officials said.
The education initiative involving the city, City Springs Theatre Company and Sandy Springs Foundation “provide access to the arts for underserved populations who lack the resources to attend arts events and engage young people in the exploration of potential career opportunities in the arts,” said Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul.
City Springs Theatre will work with Performing Arts Center management to plan, produce and executive the arts education program, officials said. Funding will be provided by the foundation.
The Performing Arts Center is to open this summer.
