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.
