The Laredo Center for the Arts provides a variety of arts education programs for children and adults. Thanks to the support of many local corporations and foundations, we are able to coordinate an exciting curriculum of music, theatre, and visual arts classes.
Our next Academy will include even more opportunities for children who really and truly want to develope and explore their love of arts and humanities.
For more information on houw your child can become a part of our great programs, please talk to Rosie Santos at (956) 725-1715.
These courses are made possible through a grant from the Guadalupe and Lilia Martinez Foundation.
LCA AT HOME
Laredo Center for the arts will be having online art activities for children of all ages. We hope these activities are a source of fun for families during these trying times. The activities are inspired by influential artists, as well as, current events. These activities are posted on our
LCA at Home tab, Facebook page, as well as on our Instagram as highlights. We encourage everyone to send us the final products of their activities or tag us @laredocenterforthearts or send them to us through Facebook. We will post the photos sent to us on our social media account.
