Center ARTES is a leading edge arts education organization founded on award winning programs and effective partnerships that have been making a difference in the lives of San Diego County children since 1993. Now, as a chartered Center (2003) at Cal State San Marcos, we are continuing our work to galvanize San Diego County arts educators into a diverse community with a common vision.
Arts education research is demonstrating more and more that it is an enjoyable, effective way to keep kids interested in their education and to improve their performance across the curriculum (visit our Research page for more information). Overall, arts education contributes to raising our children to be intelligent, empowered, active members of our communities, and to enjoy life more along the way.
