Arts Education Resources

For opportunities to present visiting artists in schools, the Children's Creative Project, managed by the Santa Barbara County Office of Education, provides wonderful resources and connections. View their online course catalog and more information.

Historically and currently, Santa Barbara County hosts incredible arts education organizations, including the Visual Arts & Design Academy and Multimedia Arts & Design Academy, Music Academy of the West, and the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts. We are proud to support the Santa Barbara County Alliance for Arts Education.

The Santa Barbara Public Library provides free, frequent arts and culture activities year-round and countywide.
