Lives Full of Choices

4.2 Arts

Every LA’s BEST site received quality music, dance, theatre and visual arts programming and students had the opportunity to participate in an array of multi-week, professional artist residencies.

“My experiences with
LA’s BEST have been nothing short of enriching, the immediate reciprocity between teacher and student, and sharing the idea that art making is about possibilities rather than a finite answer is exciting and transferable to other disciplines, is something I cherish.”
