Outreach Activities

As part of our mission to reach all members of the community, the Potomac Arts Academy coordinates a number of effective and artistic outreach programs!

Along with providing outstanding performing and visual arts classes and programs for the general public, the Potomac Arts Academy of George Mason University also strives to bring inspiring artistic opportunites to members of the community who might not otherwise be able to enjoy such options. Concurrently, this provides an excellent platform for qualified Mason arts students who get involved to gain valuable applied learning experiences.

Current Potomac outreach programs:
