Welcome to the Nancy and Frederick DeMatteis Arts Education Program!
An essential component of the mission of the WHBPAC is to ensure that the arts play an integral role in the lives of both children and adults in our communities. To that end, WHBPAC Arts Education Programs currently provide a distinctive and comprehensive array of offerings for children and their families year-round. Every year, over 15000 children, adolescents and older adults discover the magic of live theatre, music and dance through our bus-in School Day Performance series, year-round Family Friendly Performances and skill-based arts classes, residencies and camps.
Participation in the performing arts can unleash creative energy, help a youngster to find his or her unique voice, reinforce valuable life skills and support the development of an appreciation and lifelong love for the arts.
We invite you to browse through our many offerings to see which programs may be the perfect fit for you!
We gratefully acknowledge and thank our sponsors for their generous support!
Performances are made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York State's 62 communities.
