Immersing yourself or a child in fine arts and in educational programming is a great way to lead a more fulfilling and enriching life. Whether it’s learning to play an instrument or read music, or trying your hand at singing, dancing, or acting, there is a place to develop your talent at The Kroc Center. If the fine arts are more for you, classes in sculpting, drawing and painting are also available for you to create your masterpiece. Our state-of-the-art performance and studio spaces allow artists to hone their skills and showcase their work.
