Educational Program

Itzhak Perlman

The Schmidt Family Center for the Arts was formed with the idea of exposing young children and their families to the fine arts. With this in mind education has been an important aspect of Festival of the Arts BOCA. Each visiting artist is encouraged to engage with students in some way, whether it is through a school visit, open rehearsal, master class or direct collaboration. Through the years many of our stars have participated.  We also provide free scholarship tickets to students and their families.

Sponsorship opportunities are available to support all of our educational efforts. Please contact our director Joanna Marie Kaye at joanna@festivalboca.org or 561-368-8445 for more information.
