Poly Arts for Youth:

Cal Poly Arts offers arts education and enrichment activities for young people on campus, in local K-12 classrooms, and in the community at large through its Poly Arts for Youth (PAFY) program.

CPA concentrates its efforts on replacing some of the arts education curriculum lost to state and local budget cuts by sending artists and performance groups into K-12 classrooms and school assemblies. In addition, we provide opportunities for Cal Poly students and the community to participate in master classes with world-class performers.

During the 2014-15 season, we will have a number of outreach opportunities planned, including an on-campus student Q&A with Branford Marsalis, an in-school visit bySamité, and a dance master class with the members of the Paul Taylor Dance Company.

For information and reservations, please contact or phone 756-5999.


PAFY is supported in part by generous grants from the Adrienne Fissel Youth Outreach Endowment, the Handler & Steiner Family Fund, the San Luis Obispo Community Foundation, the Cal Poly Arts Youth Arts Education Endowment, WESTAF, and individual donors like you.


Please consider contributing to PAFY to help keep the arts alive for our students.
