Arts for Kids
Instrumental and vocal art are beautiful ways to express your passion! With a wide range of choices, musicians often pick up multiple genres. There are various competitions that occur throughout the year and many musicians find ways to give back to their community by performing at events. Some local music programs are Spokane Youth Symphony and Bartell Music Academy.

One of the most amazing things with this art is that there is never a wrong answer! Artists can try different mediums to create or transform the ordinary into something unique and extraordinary! A personal favorite may be Edgar Degas’ The Little Dancer. Enjoy exploring different art today with Spokane Art School, the Corbin Art Center, Heather Thyme Art, and Urban Art Co-op PotteryUrban Art Co-op Pottery.
Dance is a sport that is performed year-round. Typically, younger dancers start out in a ballet or tap and movement class, which teaches them the basics of dance. As dancers get older and get more experience in the core style of dance, they will have opportunities to try jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, musical theater, ballroom, pointe and many more! Currently Studio INC Dance Academy is one of the leading studios in the Spokane area. With their staff having over 75 years of dance experience combine, you’ll be sure your children are in good hands.

Theater is a wonderful way to channel energy and transform yourself. There are many different ways to get involved – from set design, to production, hair/make-up and so much more – those involved in theater all have an important role in story telling. Many schools offer theater/drama programs and be sure watch Spokane Children’s Theatre for additional opportunities!
There are many pageant/scholarship programs today on the national and local level. The competition typically includes private interview, talent, fitness and evening gown. Judges are looking for the candidate who best represents the qualities upheld by the specific organization. Contestants and titleholders are also highly involved in volunteering, promoting service initiatives in their community. Check out your local community court or explore organizations like Miss America, Miss USA or Miss America Volunteer!
