SUMMER AND FALL ARTS PROGRAMS

All people are gifted.  Time, physical, and economic access are vital to developing in any area of life, including the arts. Hard data and social cues support the fact that the arts have an overwhelmingly positive impact on society.  ACCA bridges the gap between natural gift and knowledge by offering training opportunities.  Classes are custom designed based on the criteria established between ACCA and the program facility.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS

ACCA has presented professional development workshops for educators in all contexts and our knowledge base of S.T.E.A.M. is incorporated into each workshop. Our collective experience of upwards of 50 years in the arts is an invaluable tool that allows us to bring a comprehensiveness and creativity to our workshops.
