Santa Clarita is home to a flourishing arts scene featuring public art pieces and youth arts education programs. The City administers an arts grants program and provides information and assistance to artists and cultural organizations through the New Heights: Artist Development Workshop. There are four, live theaters in Santa Clarita which regularly educate, entertain and enrich our community through a diverse blend of professional, educational and community programming. From popular musicians and classic plays to art galleries and historic tours, you will find it all in Santa Clarita.
The City of Santa Clarita takes pride in utilizing exhibition spaces to share the talented work of local art organizations, independent artists, and nationally recognized artists. Art galleries enrich our community by bringing new visitors to local exhibit spaces to experience art.
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.
The City of Santa Clarita is committed to increase opportunities for students in the Santa Clarita Valley to participate in and be exposed to high quality arts experiences, while also increasing the awareness of the value the arts add to the community.
