About Us

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Welcome to The Arts Project of Orange County. Our goal is to foster the arts in our community by creating a space for students of all ages to grow and develop as performing and visual artists. Through many conversations with parents it became clear that not only did San Clemente need Fine Art, Music and Theatre studios, it needed a comprehensive facility that could be a one-stop solution. Aimed at cultivating a passion for the arts locally, we are here to serve as a creative third home. (A place outside of the home, school or business) With a safe and affirming environment, and a variety of teachers, we are here to serve our community’s artistic needs, and save parents a little driving time and gas by offering it all under one roof.

“We made it a point to create a studio that is a second home to our kids and we hope that The Arts Project becomes that for our clients and kids. We want to start an arts movement by creating community and collaboration between the arts and the artists in our beautiful town of San Clemente.”
