Our vision is a Detroit where all youth have access to high-quality arts education.
To that end, we provide exceptional and relevant youth arts education programs led by professional artists that engage and inspire youth, families and teachers in Early Learning, K-12 Classrooms, and at our Out-of-School Arts location in Southwest Detroit.
Detroit Wolf Trap
As the Detroit Affiliate of the Wolf Trap Institute for Early Learning Through the Arts, Living Arts’ brings arts education to Head Starts, pre-school classes and the community for youth 3 months to 5 years.
Youth Classes + Workshops
We offer a wide array of after school classes and workshops in dance, visual art, video animation & production, digital music and open studios for teens. No one is turned away for inability to pay, as we offer discounts and scholarships for those in need.
Our teaching artists take arts-infused education to schools K-12 in Metro Detroit, supporting the core curriculum and training teachers to utilize the arts in the classroom.
We bring the best of our students’ work and present professional Detroit artists to the community! Our events, such as our popular performance series Teatro Chico, regularly offer a hands-on art experience.
