Education & Outreach

Edmonds Center for the Arts (ECA) is committed to expanding the reach and impact of our performances by actively engaging students, teachers, and community members of all ages in Education & Outreach.


All in-person Education & Outreach programs are on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions. As the situation develops, we will update our programming according to the WA State Reopening Guidance. In the meantime, please see our Kidstock! @Home and Dementia-Inclusive pages for free, virtual programming during the 2020/21 season. Please contact Katie Newbaum, Education & Outreach Coordinator, at katie@ec4arts.org for more information.
