About Arts for All's Programs for Students  


Programs for Students launched in February 2004. This directory centralizes access to quality, approved, K-12 arts education programs that meet the Content Standards for California Public Schools, which include the Visual and Performing Arts Standards, for teachers and school administrators throughout the County's 81 school districts.

The directory enables educators to strategically search for arts education programs by arts discipline, subject area, grade level, program type, and cultural origin.

For artists and organizations, this directory offers a free marketing opportunity to reach the 94,000 teachers and administrators in Los Angeles County.

How to have your programs listed:

In order to be listed in this directory, arts organizations and artists must complete an online application form, submit by email all required supplemental materials and be approved.

Applications are accepted annually.

Consider reviewing the past Guidelines now to prepare for the next application round. Submission requirements take time to prepare as they include signed letters of recommendations from schools and video and photographic documentation.

If you are interested in applying, please share your contact information and we will alert you directly in advance of the application period.

Want to update the programs that you already have listed?

Updates can be made by submitting a Word document with full copy for the categories for which changes are required. Please note to which of your programs the changes should be applied and organize the new copy with the headings as they appear on the website. Email the updates to artsforall@arts.lacounty.gov

Information will be reviewed and updated within two weeks of your submission and you will receive a confirmation email once complete.

New programs or major program design changes must be submitted for review by peer panel during the open application period.



All arts organizations and artists providing services on Programs for Students are responsible for satisfying applicable laws or policies related to providing educational services, which may include, but are not necessarily limited to, obtaining live scan or other criminal background clearances and documenting health status and the absence of communicable disease.
