The Music and Arts Education Workshops and classes at the CEMA Center provides a thorough, comprehensive training ground for young people who believe they will pursue an artistic career. Cultivating critical thinking, art making, self-discovery, and technical development—all are objectives of our arts curriculum. The nurturing instructors at CEMA Center promotes students’ mastery of their unique creative processes, opportunities to collaborate across disciplines, exposure to prominent cultural leaders and artists—as well as the solid academic bones—to enable them to shape their own careers. Whether they decide to pursue college degrees or go directly for professional arts opportunities, our dedicated students grow through intensive training and numerous opportunities to exhibit their artwork as well as to perform, publish, and document their experience.
CEMA Center presents annual events to display the work and talent of all CEMA Center students, participants, supporters, sponsors, and registered artists. The presentation of these events are fundraising opportunities to help the students with the materials needed for the classes and workshops that they register to participate. In many cases, these materials are provided free to the students.
