Community Outreach Program

An entirely private donation and grant funded program within The Arts Center in Orange, the Community Outreach Program was established in 2001 by The Arts Center’s co-founder, Linda Marston-Reid. The program has blossomed, evolving from serving one small group with 200 art experiences in 2001 to serving over 15 programs, at venues outside of The Arts Center, on a monthly basis (or more), equaling over 5,000 fine arts or musical experiences yearly.

Award-winning artists, and national and international touring musicians are a few of the individuals that comprise the staff that bring the Outreach Program out into Orange County and surrounding communities. Strong partnerships built within the community have also enabled Outreach to thrive.

Bringing fine arts and music to those who may not have the opportunity to fully explore these cultural activities is ultimately the Outreach Program’s goal. By offering comprehensive programs that allow participants to explore many different modalities and techniques, a common thread is followed – one that encourages each individual to stretch and strengthen their creativity- and to evolve within each artistic endeavor.
