Westport Cultural Arts
How do we as a community help raise inquisitive, self-aware, adaptable, and perceptive children?
Westport Cultural Arts helps develop the whole child by exposing our students to professional, live performing arts and teacher selected enrichment programs.
The arts promote positive development in the academic, social, and emotional realms of students. It makes for a more present and thoughtful person, well primed to learn and thrive in our ever changing world.
This appreciation and connection to the arts are enabled by our parent contributions with support from our PTA and educators. This investment brings joy to our children and pays dividends as they develop and grow into fully functioning and expressive adults.
