    Vision

    We believe everyone is creative and that people of all ages and all incomes should have access to community-centered arts experiences. Which means both learning in classes and learning through performing and attending performances are vital.

    Here at the Fremont Abbey, local skilled teaching artists share their passion and impart knowledge to all ages and incomes in ways that are interactive, inspiring and giving back to the community.

    Our classes or performance opportunities:

    • Always have a welcoming atmosphere & perspective that everyone is creative
    • Are multi-sensory wherever possible
    • Emphasize collaboration & creative problem solving
    • Use concept-based lessons, connecting to ideas/concepts students are currently learning or are culturally relevant
    • Whenever possible, use multiple art forms and approaches to integrate brain & body, individual & community

    ABBEY KIDS Birthdays!

    Want an unique, creative birthday party? Host your child’s personalized Art Explorers party here at the Abbey complete with fun themes and teaching artists from the Abbey’sclasses available to help with mini-classes that are fun & educational.

    • Event planning assistance available
    • Healthy food & treats available from our preferred caterers
    • Sound systems, projector/screen, chairs, tables, kitchen, etc.
    • Setup & Cleanup assistance available

    Sliding Scale pricing for all incomes, typically $150-500 depending on date/time/teacher/etc.

     

    Scholarships

    To remain a vibrant community arts center, we strive to be accessible for all ages and incomes. We believe (and recent studies have shown) that collaborative arts experiences actually strengthen individuals and communities… not to mention the effect on your brain development at any age!

    One of the ways we support development and stay sustainable is by offering “built in” scholarships with every group class at the Abbey.

    Many Abbey classes have a minimum size to become active as well as a maximum size to maintain a quality educational experience. Please tell your friends to join!

     

    TEACH at THE ABBEY

    Most of our classes are started by local teachers who want to help in their community for a truly grass-roots Arts Education experience! The key to success is an exciting & fun class that fills a need and can be promoted well to have at least 5 students enrolled (+ any scholarship students).  Feel free to email classes(at)fremontabbey.org with your proposal.
