Target Demographic: Boys and Girls ages 5-18
Location: 17801 Detroit Ave, Lakewood, OH 44107

We’ve all seen the statistics about the value of arts education. Children do better in school and score higher on tests, young professionals are more likely to be financially successful, and adults are more creative and productive workers. Those are the measurable benefits. But what about those things you can’t track on a graph? Happiness. Joy of discovery. Patience. Appreciation for beauty in all forms. Sense of accomplishment. With more than 200 opportunities each week, Beck Center for the Arts is the place for you and your family to experience all the arts have to offer. We have classes, lessons, and award-winning programs in dance, music, theater, and visual arts, as well creative arts therapies for individuals with special needs, and outreach education. We welcome thousands of students from across Northeast Ohio to our campus each year for field trips and student matinees. And we are particularly proud to showcase the best in student and professional achievement thanks to our valuable onsite resources in the form of two stages, art galleries, and recital hall. Our Dance and Theater Education programs have been named “Best of the West’ for 9 consecutive years! Our Music Education has also won “Best of the West” in 2016 and 2017.
