For 20 years Sitar Arts Center has been building community through the arts with our children, teens, and their families.

Each semester, 80% of our students come from low-income households, because our mission is to provide essential opportunities to those who wouldn’t otherwise have access.

Our immediate response to the pandemic was to actively listen to what our families needed and wanted from us.

Many of our families are facing unemployment while needing to provide structure, routine, and socialization opportunities for their children.

So we immediately built Sitar Online. Each week, there are 30 live online classes, and this summer we held an online camp that was engaging, fun, and full of learning.

But we need your help. The adaptation to virtual programming incurs expenses that we couldn’t plan for.

Thank you for considering a gift to Sitar Arts Center. Please know that it will preserve our students’ place of artistic expression and belonging.
