" I decided to apply public policy to a creative industry because I feel like the best way to reach people is through the arts. Everyone connects over the arts."

Alumni Spotlight

Riley McMackin

I think a highlight (of Art & Learning) for sure, was doing Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and having to be painted green for every single performance to play Oola, then having to do a quick change de-green myself, and head out as a different character later in the show.

We are so excited to highlight alumni, Ruby Jay, this month. While we will always remember her as the Scarecrow in our 2014 production of The Wizard of Oz (below) and Alice in Alice in Wonderland you may recognize her from the CBS series “Unicorn!” among many other credits.

Confidence and Creativity for Life!

Give your child the gift of belonging, and an opportunity to contribute to their communities. When our youth make art together, they change themselves and the world around them for the better.

At Arts & Learning your student can embrace their creativity through performance art, and transform how they perceive themselves and their place in the world.

Our instructors understand how to connect with you and your child to bring out their amazing talents. These “teaching artists” implement college-level concepts into an inclusive and accessible educational environment.


Be a part of high-quality productions where students learn the intricacies of live stage performance, instilling them with confidence, poise, and a sense of wonder.
