Arts for Learning San Diego
For over 50 years, Arts for Learning San Diego (A4LSD), an affiliate of the Young Audiences Arts for Learning national network, has dedicated itself to integrating the arts into the education and lives of all children of our region through an extraordinary range of high quality performances, residencies and workshops to help our young people identify their cultural roots and discover their creative wings.
A4LSD selects superior professional artists who are skilled in communicating with young people. Artist residencies go beyond appreciation and bring children a powerful medium for personal expression. Performances and field trips are often a child's first encounter with the beauty of ballet, the majesty of the French horn or the excitement of Latin American samba.
A4LSD has long standing partnerships with National School District, in the diverse city of National City (south of San Diego), and The Salvation Army Kroc, collaborator on Family Arts & Literacy Night program.
