Free Art or Music Lessons for your Child or Teen

 

Do you qualify for Free lessons?

Our Kids Rock & Little Picasso’s programs are for kids & teens whose parents don’t quite have the budget to provide Art or Music lessons for their child. Children must be between 8 and 16 years old for this program.

We receive donations specifically for this program from both individuals and businesses that want to give the Gift of Art & Music for children & teens within the Rio Vista Community. Each donation covers a minimum of 4 weeks of lessons (some sponsors may choose to provide 2 or more consecutive months).

When you sign up…

Your child will be selected randomly as donations come in from gracious Sponsors. Once chosen from the list, the Sponsor will then receive an email introducing your child (photo’s optional). Each Sponsor has pre-selected whether they want to gift ART or MUSIC.
