Arts Education We’ve all seen the statistics about the value of arts education. Children do better in school and score higher on tests, young professionals are more likely to be financially successful, and adults are more creative and productive workers. Those are the measurable benefits. But what about those things you can’t track on a graph? Happiness. Joy of discovery. Patience. Appreciation for beauty in all forms. Sense of accomplishment. With more than 200 opportunities each week, Beck Center for the Arts is the place for you and your family to experience all the arts have to offer. We have classes, lessons, and award-winning programs in dance, music, theater, and visual arts. Our Dance and Theater Education programs have been named “Best of the West’ for 9 consecutive years! Our Music Education has also won "Best of the West” in 2016 and 2017.
