At The Studio School at Palos Verdes Art Center we believe in the power of art to ignite the imagination and be an agent for change. We stand united with our artists, educators and students in support of a democracy that celebrates diversity, promotes understanding, exhibits compassion and nurtures the creative spirit of our community. We are deeply committed to providing a welcoming environment free from discrimination on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, age, or ability. Our mission is to provide equal access to arts for all.
