Design for Sharing is our free K-12 arts-education program. For more than 40 years DFS has been making the performing arts at UCLA an accessible and inspirational part of children’s lives.
DFS provides interactive and educational experiences for more than 16,000 students each year by creating opportunities for them to attend special performances at UCLA or participate in arts-residency programs at their own schools and in the classroom. We also produce educational materials, links and resources to artists and arts information to help teachers expand upon and extend the impact of performance experiences and art-making activities.
DFS meets the National Arts Education Content Standards by providing instruction in multidisciplinary art forms, and by integrating arts activities into the school day.
