Education & Outreach

It is the mission of Scottsdale Arts’ education department to provide the highest-quality creative experiences to our community, inspire new ideas, create pathways for shared understanding, and highlight new approaches to subjects and ideas. We are excited to offer a broad scope of programming that encompass all arts media. From our school matinee performances, guided museum tours, hands-on workshops, and arts-integrated classroom services – we are sure that you will find meaningful ways to engage with the arts! Programs for students specifically address academic and visual arts standards to support curriculum through the arts.

We look forward to connecting with you through the arts!
