Fall 2020 Performance, Exhibit & Event Season

The Charter Arts Fall Performance Season will Innovate and Inspire in New Ways!

Our fall season may be virtual but it won’t stop our incredible young artists from putting on a show.   Charter Arts is committed to providing innovative virtual events that will focus on the artistic process, student-centered original works, and creativity.  

We will be inspiring each other as we create new and innovative ways to bring art to our dedicated audience.

While we all look forward to a time when our students will once again perform on our stages showcase their works in our gallery and interact with guests and audiences at many showcases, readings, and events, we will use ‘the stage that we are given’ this season.  The virtual stage may have its challenges but it also brings with it a spark of excitement as the beautiful artistry created each day at our school will now reach an even wider audience! We look forward to seeing you there!
