OUR KIDS EDUCATION
As an Education Foundation, PCEF, its board, its donors and its volunteers have great devotion for student success in our community. We believe in their potential to have significant impact in higher education, the workforce, and the world. We believe PCEF grants open doors, ignite dreams, and launch passions. And all of our efforts are strongly grounded by our mission of enhancing academic achievement.
INVEST IN EDUCATION
Arts-Kids use the expressive arts and group dynamics to empower all youth to build self-expression and community, along with life skills that increase communication and listening, mental and emotional health, problem solving and decision-making, and creativity.
Arts-Kids was founded in 1999 in Park City, Utah. Today Arts-Kids hosts fun, experiential learning sessions in a non-competitive space for youth ages 3-18 years of age. These sessions occur in schools, libraries, community centers and after school programs located in Park City and Salt Lake City.
Activities presented by Arts-Kids span a wide range of interest, from dance and drama to recycled art and speed stacking. Kids are exposed to different art forms while learning a critical life skills. Each Arts-Kids session is integrated with S.T.R.E.A.M activities (Science, Technology, Recreation, Engineering, Art and Math) helping to promote life long learning and discovery. At Arts-Kids we believe in helping kids find their happy place!
