School of Arts and Culture

At the School of Arts and Culture at MHP we see the arts as powerful vehicles for human development and social transformation—by creating nurturing communities for children, especially those at risk.

We work to create a deep alignment in social and artistic goals. Our task is not to integrate the goals of social transformation and artistic excellence—but to, in the words of our colleagues in the El Sistema movement “reimagine them as one goal.”

Performance and exhibition is emphasized with the goal of working together toward a communal and joyful experience of creating art together—not as competitive pressure to see who is best.

We are proud to offer children and the community an inspiring space of professional caliber for performance and exhibition as a vehicle to make their learning visible.

The School offers quarterly after school sessions and 3 two-week summer sessions in visual and performing arts, and provides a “multi-cultural and inter-cultural venue” for community events and programs that embrace all cultures, while exploring the artistic traditions, cultural history, and contemporary creative expression of Mexican Arts. Afterschool programs span 10 weeks and summer day camps provide a full day of arts curriculum, a healthy lunch and two snacks. All sessions culminate in a student performance/exhibition, coordinated by School faculty and staff and attended by family and community members.
