Inner-City Arts

Inner-City Arts, widely regarded as one of the nation's most effective arts education providers, is an oasis of learning, achievement and creativity in the heart of Skid Row, and a vital partner in the work of creating a safer, healthier Los Angeles.

Under the guidance of teaching artists, Inner-City Arts’ students are immersed in a safe and supportive environment where they engage in a variety of visual and performing art forms. Inner-City Arts’ services include classes during the instructional day for elementary students, workshops for teens, and professional development for educators.

Everyday, more than 450 children walk through the doors of Inner-City Arts to paint, dance, sing, build and discover. Without the help of our amazing volunteers, we would never be able to offer so many creative opportunities for LA youth.  To volunteer, click here
