For the 2017-18 school year, CLARA will maximize our resources and increase our impact and student reach by focusing our programs on three targeted SCUSD schools. We anticipate serving a minimum of 2,500 SCUSD students with over 2,000 hours of arts exposure and education outreach programs.

Students at these schools will receive 10-week artist residencies, school assemblies, interactive workshops, free tickets to performances, and scholarship opportunities to attend classes at CLARA.

Our fall semester focuses on Hollywood Park Elementary School, where programs include

In-Class Residencies:

  • Kindergarten: Ballet
  • 1st: French Arts & Culture
  • 2nd: Samba
  • 3rd: Irish Dance
  • 4th: Voice
  • 5: (Spring semester)
  • 6: Theatre
  • 4-6 Special Day Classes: Capoiera

And a school-wide field trip to Sacramento Ballet’s The Nutcracker

CLARA is also providing a series of Work-Based Learning scholarships to students at SCUSD high schools.

Spring semester programming at middle and high schools will include music and literacy-based performing arts programs. We look forward to sharing them with you soon!
