CLARA — the E. Claire Raley Studios for the Performing Arts — provides studio and performance space for professional and community-based arts groups to create, collaborate, develop stability, and grow. We just opened, in April 2016, and our tenants are deeply grateful to the partnerships with the City of Sacramento, Sacramento City Unified School District, the Raley-Teel family, and many other artists and visionaries who had the foresight to make our work possible!

Housed within the 100-year-old historic Fremont School in midtown Sacramento CLARA brings to life the fearless spirit, love of the arts and culture E. Claire Raley passed down through generations of the Raley-Teel family. Rooted in the strong belief that arts are essential to the human spirit, fosters lifetime learning, and critical to economic development for the Sacramento region, CLARA also provides access to quality arts education in partnership with Sacramento City Unified School District.
