Opened in 2006, the Sun Valley Youth Arts Center mission is to provide quality visual and performing arts programming to the community of Sun Valley and schools in the greater Los Angeles area. The facility functions as a cultural Mecca, a utopian learning center for youth to indulge in a fine arts experience with a variety of workshops such as painting, drawing, digital imaging, graphic design, game design, photography, movie and video production, toy design, screen printing, street art, mix media, culinary arts and cake decorating, sculpture, ceramics, music, and theatre classes. The capacity of each discipline will entice students to learn the fundamentals of each medium and genre of the visual and performing arts.
The Center also celebrates Sun Valley’s multicultural communities with numerous cultural events throughout the year such as Día de los Muertos, Afro-Cuban Music and Arts Festival, and Asian and Chinese New Years celebrations.
In addition, the facility is utilized as a meeting place for artists and organizations to entertain. We hope to create a local artist market to help promote local and international artists to exhibit their work in the Sun Valley Youth Arts Center Gallery and enhance the art experience with the community.
The Sun Valley Youth Arts Center is a wonderful asset to the existing landscape of Sun Valley and will continue to build bridges with the surrounding communities and schools in the City of Los Angeles, Council District 6.
Since 1987, the Stone House is registered as one of Los Angeles historical landmarks and serves as administrative office space and a digital lab for the Sun Valley Youth Arts Center.
