Arts Education

The Myrna Loy Arts Education and Outreach

Art enriches life. The Myrna Loy enriches our whole community by bringing arts experiences into school classrooms and many other groups in the community. The Myrna Loy offers a series of classroom, community, and onstage experiences tailored to your group. We aim to teach, to inspire, to empower, and to generate a lifelong love of the arts in everybody—regardless of ability, mobility, experience, or age.

To ask how to schedule an arts experience with your school or group, contact Retta Leaphart: [email protected]
