At Arts Umbrella, we believe that an arts education inspires young people to live creative, authentic, and courageous lives and we want to make it as easy as possible for the young people in your life to experience the arts as soon as they can. This is why we are introducing our new Early Learning Foundations (ELF).

ELF lets our youngest students experience a variety of art forms in one half-day session that has been designed with the busy lives of families in mind. Caregivers have the flexibility to drop-off to supervised studios between 8:30am and 8:45am and pick-up between 11:30am and 12pm. While the program gives children an enriched adventure in the arts, caregivers have a 3-hour window to work, catch-up with friends or have some me time.

For our early learners, this fun and immersive program will allow time to make friends, explore different art forms, investigate problem solving, nurture curiosity, and develop self-confidence, whether it’s a first dance, theatre, or visual arts class.

Support Arts Umbrella

Arts Umbrella donors, volunteers, and sponsors share the same belief: that arts education can transform a child’s life. Whether attending an event, making a monthly gift, or donating time, our supporters are vital to helping us inspire creativity for good through the arts.
