McGroarty Arts Center provides access to the arts through in-depth arts instruction and experiences.  Affordable or free multidisciplinary arts instruction is offered to at-risk youth, children, and families, as are performances, exhibitions and events that engage the greater public. The Center is a venue for artists to present their work, while preserving the legacy of John Steven McGroarty and his historic home.


We envision a healthy, local arts ecosystem that supports a breadth of accessible arts and culture experiences for every individual and family in the Foothill communities. Over the next three years, McGroarty Arts Center will expand services, improve facilities, and initiate new outreach campaigns to become an art park and cultural destination for the local community. The Center will continue to develop its nurturing atmosphere, maintaining the one-on-one attention that beginning, intermediate, and advanced students have come to expect from instructors and staff.
