Spring Classes Now In Session!

Making music, art, dance, and theatre through the creative work of Miles Davis! The William Grant Still Arts Center’s Spring Music and Art Education Program begins again from March 15-May 7. Starting February 29-March 4, give the Center a call to reserve your space.


The Spring Education program teaches music and art through the life and work of a select African-American composer as part of  the Center’s African-American Composers Series. This year,  that composer will be Miles Davis.

We are pleased to share that all classes will be 100% completely free for ages 3-18, available on a first-come, first-served basis. You must be pre-registered to register.

We’ve added a new class just to offer the chance to be able to get more into the work of Miles. That class is Trumpet (ages 7-18) which we’ll offer once a week on Tuesdays.

Special classes for ages 12-18 include Teen Art – Through Miles; Eye, On-Camera Acting and our Big Read Teen Writing and Bookmaking Club.

Continuing classes include Keyboards, Intro to Visual Art, Drums and African Martial Arts/Capoeria for children and teens, plus Music & Movement for early childhood (ages 3-6)
