Village Arts offers year-round arts programs after school, weekends and at our summer camp. Our arts center is located at Faith Presbyterian Church of Valley Village and offer programs at Colfax Charter Elementary School as well as independent schools in North Hollywood area.Currently, our performance and visual arts programs serve a diverse population of students and offer scholarships to families in need. We collaborate with the local artists to help teach, develop and create programming and continue to expand the array of classes we offer in performance and visual arts.
In the coming year, we plan to further expand our scholarship program for families and we are currently developing programs in design and technical theatre with the local schools and professional designers.
Pam and John’s creation of Village Arts comes from their passion for theatre and education. Together they decided to build on Pam’s successful approach to teaching that allows each student to discover their way to achievement and success. The creation of an arts center in North Hollywood is to provide a destination for the Valley Village and North Hollywood community to participate in the arts and expose children to all the arts offer.
