Inner-City Arts' Visual, Media & Performing Arts Institutes offer self-select after-school and weekend classes to middle and high school students, as well as 4th & 5th graders.

Online This Fall for Creative Arts Learning!

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED AND CLASSES ARE UNDERWAY!

We welcomed back young people throughout L.A. and beyond for a fun, creative, and engaging fall session online with nearly 20 classes across art forms like Drama/Theater, Filmmaking, Media Arts, Music, Photography, Stand-Up Comedy, Visual Arts, and our Creativity Lab!

Inner-City Arts offers a supportive space for young people to express themselves through guided, creative exploration that supports the development of the whole person. Art skills and life skills!

The Visual, Media & Performing Arts Institutes offer specialized, in-depth workshops led by professional teaching artists. These classes present a variety of opportunities for middle and high school students, depending on their level of interest and skill in a specific art form.
