dear friends
We feel very lucky here at P.S. ARTS. With the support of hundreds of people dedicated to
providing all students with access to a high-quality education, we have made great strides in
promoting educational equity in Los Angeles County and Central California. We want to thank all
of you for supporting this important work and for everything you do for the underserved students
in our community.
children’s lives
arts education
For 22 years, P.S. ARTS has worked hard to provide quality arts education in the schools we serve.
It is our firm belief that every student, despite economic status, intellectual ability, or sociocultural background, is entitled to study art as part of his or her overall educational experience.
So much has been accomplished in the field and in our programs, and yet there is still so much
to do.
We hope that through our annual report you will have a better idea of the work that goes
into building our programs. Every week, we see firsthand the capabilities children have
when provided the opportunity to express themselves through the arts. As we close another
year at P.S. ARTS, we are proud of and inspired by the work of our dedicated Teaching Artists,
hardworking staff, and most of all, the students we serve. We invite you to look back with us at
some of P.S. ARTS biggest achievements in the 2012-2013 school year.

about us
P.S. ARTS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing arts
education to underserved public schools and communities.
P.S. ARTS was created in response to significant education budget cuts in the 1970s and 1980s,
which cut local tax revenues for public schools and resulted in the systematic reduction and
elimination of arts programs in California public schools.
In the Spring of 1991, Dr. Paul Cummins, renowned educator, author, and founder of Crossroads
School in Santa Monica, was on his way to the kitchen during a potluck dinner and literally
bumped into a man that he had never met but looked quite familiar – famed musician Herb
Alpert. They began a conversation, which has become P.S. ARTS folklore... Paul decried the lack
of arts education at a local school he had recently visited. Herb’s response was, “You mean the
arts are just gone from these public schools? What if I gave you a grant?” And thus, P.S. ARTS was
founded as an outreach project of the Crossroads Community Foundation. In 2003, P.S. ARTS
received its own non-profit 501 (c) 3 designation.
P.S. ARTS has grown from serving 285 students in one school, to more than 15,000 students in 35
underserved schools across Los Angeles County and California’s Central Valley, and an additional
1,000 students through after school and enrichment programs. For more than twenty years,
P.S. ARTS has provided nationally recognized arts instruction programs to tens of thousands of
students attending underserved public elementary and middle schools in our community.
Core Model
P.S. ARTS provides year-long arts education to every child in a school integrated into the regular
school day. Our organization hires and trains professional Teaching Artists to develop high-quality,
state standards-based curriculum in dance, music, theater, and visual arts in underserved public
P.S. ARTS is deeply committed to promoting the value of the arts in schools and strengthening
arts education in public education. In 2010, P.S. ARTS launched the innovative TakePART (Publicschool Arts Regional Team) initiative. Through strategic collaboration and resource sharing,
thousands of children from five Southern California school districts are receiving dance, music,
theater, and visual arts instruction during the school day. Additionally, P.S. ARTS is actively
represented at key arts education policy committees at the regional and national level. P.S.
ARTS is also honored to have participated in the President’s Committee on Arts and Humanities
summer institute exploring arts as strategies for school improvement, and as an active member
of the combined California Art Council and Department of Education initiative, CREATE CA.
Community Outreach
P.S. ARTS works closely with our partner schools to increase arts and cultural opportunities available
to the entire school communities. Our free Family Art Nights have served thousands of community
members and feature multi-generational art lessons and activities. At P.S. ARTS, we are especially
proud of the annual TakePART Arts Festival that brings children and families from five school
districts together to showcase the work of K-12th grade students. P.S. ARTS also connects with the
community through social media by regularly updating our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn,
Pinterest, and YouTube account with posts about our programs, fundraisers, and news in the field.
P.S. ARTS also keeps followers up-to-date by posting blogs once a week at psarts.org/blog.
Faculty Training
The P.S. ARTS faculty is highly trained both in the arts and in education. In addition to a
workshop professional development series, P.S. ARTS Teaching Artists are provided with frequent
individual coaching. The P.S. ARTS faculty training program focuses on topics relevant to students
attaining college and career success in the 21st century. In the summer of 2014, P.S. ARTS is
collaborating with the UCLA Visual and Performing Arts Education minor to provide a six-week
Teaching Artist training intensive.
