The City of Santa Clarita City Council and Arts Commission is proud to present the New Heights: Artist Development Workshops, which is designed to assist artists, performers, and arts organization representatives to expand their knowledge and to learn valuable tools to increase their ability to be successful. The series comprises workshops, panel discussions, and art trips that are designed to engage creative individuals, no matter what level of experience.
Public Art is a tool to add to the personality of a community, while also encouraging creative expression and discussion. Many of the Public Art projects are an opportunity for the community to be a part of the construction of the pieces, thus creating truly "public" art.
