The Arts Education Program presents DISTANCE LEARNING!
Please view the list below for online learning options offered by the Instructors and Staff of the Arts Education Program!
The Arts Education Program launched a new way to learn! Since September 2020 we have welcomed our diverse faculty and students back with distance learning at the Grand Theatre Center for the Arts. Virtual classes are offered to provide a safe learning experience for you and your family.
The skilled instructors at the Grand are teaching classes through the web application ZOOM. All classes will be accessible online via computer, tablet, or cell phone. Please see a list of our classes here!

Music Together® Classes
10-week Music Together® classes are being offered online! Adults and children ages newborn through five years come together to sing songs, experience rhythm chants, dance and move to music, play instruments, make up silly rhymes and experience a wide range of rhythmic and melodic variety. The whole family is invited to participate! Simply register one member of the family and enjoy this weekly class together. Register online at www.tracyartsandrec.com. Both Family Classes and Rhythm Kids (ages 4 to 11) classes are available!
In this introductory class, students will learn about a unique, outside the box way to break into the creative, fulfilling, and potentially lucrative industry of voice-over acting. This is a one day workshop for students 18 years and older. Register for the next online course at www.tracyartsandrec.com.
Weekly Facebook Live Art Classes
During our Summer 2020 semester, we went live on Facebook! Visual arts instructor and artist Amanda Trask taught 6 individual visual arts distance learning classes centered-around drawing. If you did not catch it live, don’t worry, you may view the past lessons on our website here. Students at home can follow along using basic art supplies such as paper and a pencil.
Facebook Live Paint Night
Visual arts instructor and artist Amanda Trask went live on Facebook for our first distance learning Paint Night on Friday, May 22, 2020. Participants followed along to create a one-of-a-kind painting from the comfort of their own home. This Paint Night is still available to everyone! Grab your paints and follow along with the video here!
Some of our Instructors are teaching privately outside of the Grand. Please check out their personal site for more information about their programming. These instructors will be returning to the Grand for in-person instruction upon our reopening.
