Young Audiences of Northern California has been creating art experiences that inspire young people, expand learning, and enliven communities since 1958. Our goal is to reach children where they live, learn, and play with meaningful arts engagement.

Because of Arts Education

We celebrate our teaching artists and arts partners for the work they do to inspire young people and expand learning through music, dance, visual arts, theater and storytelling.

Tell us how your life has been impacted by arts education! We have a template for you to use or create your own collage, performance, or poem to describe the impact of arts education in your life. Send your photos to or tag us @YAnorcal on Instagram and Facebook.
