About the Program

The City of Ventura, VEP, and the VUSD are proud to partner for this specialized Spring Children’s Celebration of the Arts program. Since 1991, thousands of elementary school children have explored the visual, dance, music and language arts of world cultures as inspiration to create or perform their own pieces in classroom workshops led by professional artists through the Children's Celebration of the Arts program. The program offers a wide variety of unique opportunities for elementary classroom teachers to enhance their curriculum. Each workshop is one hour to one hour and fifteen minutes.

Our 2019 Spring Children's Celebration of the Arts Booklet contains workshop descriptions and artist biography information. To register for classes, fill out the registration form and follow the directions on the form to submit. For more information please contact Wendy VanHorn at 805-654-7552 or by email at
